The revised tool has an increased number of 70 indicators from the initial 33 (including new indicators on areas on cultural heritage and community development). Corrective measures: The revised tool has improved the reliability and quality of the METT

score. The current performance level of 72% will inform a more realistic future target. The implementation of interventions by Management Authorities will be intensified to improve the METT score going forward. Stewardship site not yet established. The private land owners organisation requested an opportunity to re-consider the options relating to the establishment of the Nuwejaars Protected Environment. (Stewardship is a voluntary process and therefore the private owners must agree to proceed). The private land owners organisation only confirmed stewardship as preferred option after consideration of a comparison table and various engagements later in the financial year. Challenges: Establishing a stewardship is a voluntary process. Private land owners must therefore agree to the approach. The landowners requested a comparison report between the biodiversity stewardship process and NEMPAA requirements, as well as a letter of confirming the commitment and support of DEA and SANParks in establishing their land as a Protected Environment Corrective measures: A comparison table indicating the biodiversity stewardship process to declare Nuwejaars as a Protected Environment was sent to the landowners. A letter indicating DEA and SANParks commitment has been drafted and sent to the Nuwejaars private land owners. = Partially Achieved = Off target = No milestone PROGRAMME 5 : BIODIVERSITY AND CONSERVATION Strategic Objective: Ecosystems conserved, managed and sustainably used Performance indicator Annual target (2016/17) Number of interventions to ensure conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity developed and implemented 2 tools: Programme Annual Progress and Analysis

These resulted in a lesser number of hectares being treated. Corrective measures: The bids for next cycle are being finalised with time built in to ensure less delays in work starting at beginning of financial year. 2017/18 extension contracts aiming to be approved by end of April 2017. 723 750 follow-up hectares of invasive alien plants treated of 242 668 Number of follow-up hectares of 723 741 invasive alien plants treated Percentage of wild fires suppressed 90% (provided there are not more than 2 400) 100% (1 220/1 220) wild fires suppressed Strategic Objective: Enhanced sector monitoring and evaluation Number sector monitoring evaluation studies reports/publications finalised and Four studies/ reports: and Draft Phase 1 External evaluation study report with recommendation finalised = Achieved Final Data collection instruments developed and Draft phase 1 Evaluation Report not yet produced Challenges: The process of finalising contractual arrangements with the service provider took longer as there were a number of elements in the contract on which the parties were not in

agreement and consensus had to first be reached. These legal process resulted in work starting late and the overall project being delayed. Corrective measures: Management will fast track the completion of the pilot data collection by the service provider which started in the last week of March 2017. = Partially Achieved = Off target = No milestone PROGRAMME 6: ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMMES Strategic Objective: Enhanced sector monitoring and evaluation Performance indicator Annual target (2016/17) Number sector monitoring evaluation studies reports/publications finalised and Data for 9 thematic areas and collected, processed and analysed and factsheets for each produced Methodology Document for the prioritised environmentally sustainable development indices produced 4 emerging issue response options prepared and submitted to management = Achieved Programme Annual Progress and Analysis Data for 10 thematic areas collected, processed and analysed and factsheets for each produced Methodology document for the prioritised environmentally sustainable development indices covering the following indices was compiled:

Further consultation was also undertaken with the Department of Trade and Industry on the regulations. Corrective Measures: The regulations have been revised according to comments received from a stakeholder workshop. A letter has been drafted for submission to DTI for concurrence on the regulation as required in terms of as section 69 (2) of the Waste Management Act. Draft HFC Management Draft HFC Management Regulations Developed but not yet published for comments Regulation published for Challenges: A final decision on HFC management was only made in October 2016 upon adoption of the Kigali Amendment by the Parties. The reduction targets and freeze dates comments agreed to were not as stringent as those proposed in the South African regulations. A decision was subsequently taken to halt the development of the regulations until further notice. This decision was also influenced by the financial constraints due to insecurities regarding availability of international funding to support the sector in this work Corrective measures: Publication of the regulations will be prioritised and finalised in 2017/18 Draft Chemicals Management Draft National Chemicals Management Policy developed Policy developed = Achieved = Partially Achieved = Off target = No milestone PROGRAMME 7: CHEMICALS AND WASTE MANAGEMENT

This approach in calculation of waste tyre diverted from land fill sites has affects the overall percentage/performance of waste tyres diverted as reported by the implementing entity. Corrective measures: S28 Notice of intention for the Executive Authority to call for other tyre plans so as to increase % waste tyres recycled/used for energy recovery or re-used was published for comment on 31 March 2017, for 30 days.
