Contested Spaces: Mining and South Africa’s Coastal Zones

Play Video

There is growing interest in the commercial value of South Africa’s coastal zones, primarily for sand mining to supply the construction sector. While stakeholders, including resident communities, recognise the potential for economic development and employment, there are also significant negative environmental and livelihood consequences.
