Below is the report back on the recent meetings (9th and 12th May 2018) of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site Management Authority
The stakeholders mentioned in the presentation are all those influenced and affected by the Word Heritage site.
However broader than that – its the core area, the buffer area (some of our members fall into both ) and then the tourism feed area (that’s Magaliesburg..! )
This is the plan for the next 5 years and decisions will be made that might influence us in a good or bad way.
It is essential that all stakeholders (that is YOU) need to participate – If you don’t participate you can’t complain afterwards…
The COHWHS Management Authority wishes to express their gratitude to all stakeholders who participated in the Introductory Integrated Management Plan sessions held on the 9th and 12th May 2018.
Please find attached a copy of the presentation, for your records.
Please forward this information to all other relevant stakeholders.

The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site Management Authority will be holding two Tourism Information Sessions which are free of charge and open to the public. Both sessions will be chaired by Mags Pillay, Programme Director of The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site (COHWHS)
- The first session will take place at Ekudeni from 17h00-19h00 on 31 January 2018.
- The second session will take place at Sterkfontein from 10h00-12h00 on 03 February 2018.
COHWHS Public meetings form part of the stakeholder engagement plan for the COHWHS. The meetings provide an opportunity for the Management Authority (MA) to interact with stakeholders in the area, and to share information on ongoing projects and future plans. The meetings include inputs by the local municipal officials. The invitation to attend the meeting is also often extended to the local media so that they can further report on these plans. Without these meetings, the public living in the area would not be aware of the plans for the World Heritage Site. The meetings also fulfill the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) requirements of managing sites with stakeholders. The M.A also uses these meetings to pick up emerging issues of major concern that the public wishes to raise, towards the better development of the World Heritage Site.
