Title Flood risks on the Cape Flats

Summary In Cape Town, much of the Cape Flats was once covered by seasonal

wetlands. Cape Town’s population has grown very rapidly since the 1980s and the Cape Flats are now almost completely developed, including areas of seasonal wetlands. In this activity learners will consider the implications of development in these areas of the Cape Flats.

Greening the City

By comparing maps of natural resources (e.g. soil and vegetation) with maps of urban development, we can find out about the impact of development on the environment. In this activity, learners will compare maps to find out which types of indigenous vegetation are most threatened in the City of Cape Town, and decide on which indigenous plants should be used to restore nature in different parts of the City.
