About Us

The purpose of Programme: Sustainable Resource Use and Management (SRUM) is to provide sustainable resource management solutions and methodologies through the provision of agricultural engineering and LandCare services, pro-active communication, facilitation and implementation of projects as well as technology transfer to our clients and partners. 

The Programme is also responsible for the implementation and management of disaster aid schemes and to provide comments on applications for sub-division and/or rezoning of agricultural land.

The Programme is structured into four sub-programmes, namely:

  • LandCare
  • Land Use Management
  • Disaster Risk Reduction

The strategic objectives of the Programme: SRUM are:
