Welcome to the Environmental Resource Management website.

Cape Town's unique environment is its greatest asset, making it one of the most sought after urban areas in the world, both to live and work in and as a tourist destination. Located in the Cape Floral Kingdom (the smallest and most diverse of the world’s six floral kingdoms) the city is a biodiversity hot-spot of international importance.

In recognition of the need to effectively manage and protect this valuable environment, the Environmental Resource Management Department is tasked with leading the implementation of the City's Integrated Metropolitan Environmental Policy (IMEP) - a framework of strategies and programmes for environmental sustainability. One of the department’s many focus areas is to manage 16 nature reserves within the City's boundary.

You can find out more about our work in the department functions section and from our Enviroworks newsletter. Recent additions to our website can be found on the What’s new page.
