dc.description.abstract The Working for Water programme is a pioneering environmental conservation initiative in that its implementation successfully combines ecological concerns and social development benefits. By addressing unemployment, skills training and empowerment, the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and transformation issues, the programme gained political support and secured significant funding. Developing a range of social interventions brought significant challenges, however, with little opportunity as yet for a comprehensive research programme. This paper presents the ways in which the programme has contributed to poverty alleviation and social upliftment while controlling invasive alien plants, and outlines plans for three research projects. en_US
