The Kloof Conservancy has signed an Academic Collaboration Agreement with Cambridge University to explore the impact of climate change on a pilot project on the Aller River in New Germany/Claremont in Durban. This will be managed by the Faculty of Education at the University.
The agreement will enable researchers from an interdisciplinary team on a project entitled Pathways to Understanding the Changing Climate, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in the United Kingdom to work on the Aller River Project Phase 2.
The findings from the Pathways Project about attachment to place and intercultural engagement are useful in the context of the Aller River Pilot Project.
It is hoped that the knowledge that is gained from this work will be useful in similar situations in different cultural and ecological contexts.
