oa CSIR Science Scope - Understanding the science of the kalabash - empowering local rural communities to weather the impacts of climate change : adapting the way we live - human settlements
The CSIR has been working with VhaVenda communities in the Vhembe Biosphere Reserve in Limpopo since 2009 as part of a European Union Seventh Framework Programme project called LiveDiverse. Research focuses on the interface between biodiversity and the livelihoods of communities who live in or close to a biodiversity hotspot. More specifically, the CSIR has been involved in understanding the role of beliefs, perceptions and attitudes towards the natural environment, and the influence these have on people's day-to-day activities.
