Afristar is driving economic development projects and policy initiatives guided by ecological design principles where adopting regenerative systems accelerate economic development and safeguard our natural heritage for generations to come.
Our current work is focused on broad scale rural regeneration models and advocacy that seeks to outline how rural communities can meet their own needs based on an understanding of the resources that they have at their disposal and mimicking natural systems to restore and rehabilitate their ecological systems so as to create conditions for communities to thrive in harmony with the natural world.
The overall concept is to design and implement a sustainable plan for a region that restores natural ecosystems, secures water for everyone forever and creates long-term socio-economic opportunities for all people, in a unique blend of old and new technologies that unlocks a vision of an equitable regenerative future on Earth.
Primarily it is an ambitious land management program as a key driver of change that utilizes regenerative design as the basis of sustainable planning. Based on watershed management which fosters ecological restoration and the creation of abundant agricultural systems with the potential to transform people’s livelihoods.
The principles of our work are entrenched in the South African constitution which guarantees inter alia “everyone has the right to human dignity” and “to have the environment protected, for the benefit of present and future generations” and to “secure ecologically sustainable development and use of natural resources while promoting justifiable economic and social development.”
Afristar advocates a progressive vision for a sustainable future to unlock natural and social capital that is inherent in South Africa to support the creation of green jobs. Our work in development projects, land use design, participatory research and policy, positions us to offer valuable input on the processes and policies that shape our nation and our world.
