    Cette description du travail de Elna Kotze a été rédigée lors de sa sélection comme Fellow Ashoka en 1997.
    Introduction
    Elna Kotze has formed an organization to monitor the impact of current land use, to provide information on alternative sustainable land uses, and to facilitate the creation of "land use forums" to design and implement sustainable land use policies and practices. Using an original land use planning process as her starting point, Elna involves all local stakeholders in considering "higher use" alternatives that creatively blend economic, social and environmental objectives. Because ecosystems bear little relationship to existing administrative systems and land uses, they provide an ideal new baseline from which to fundamentally reconstruct South Africa's rural political economy.
