In pursuit of a positive mining legacy

An interdisciplinary University of Cape Town (UCT) research alliance has been awarded funding by the National Research Foundation (NRF) to embark on the second phase of a Community of Practice (CoP) project. Their research initially focused on the cultivation of fibre-rich plants as a means of remediating degraded mining land and boosting South Africa’s economy. In the next phase, the CoP aims to leverage these analytical developments. Their view is that appropriately informed micro industrial policy aimed at driving inclusive and sustained economic growth, is best realised through multi-disciplinary research.
