The work that the Natal Town and Regional Planning Commission is doing in the Tugela Basin in particular, and in Natal in general, has always been admired by the writer. Mention should also be made of the excellent research now being carried out in the Eastern Cape by the Buffalo Catchment Association and Rhodes University, together with certain surveys prepared by the Natural Resources Development Council such as that for the Pretoria-Witwatersrand-Vereeniging region. These surveys may be termed regional surveys in the real sense of the word in that the facts, whether they are assembled from existing sources or supplemented by further research are co-ordinated and interpreted towards the specific objective of solving major problems concerning the development of the region concerned.
