About ESA

Our Approach

We work with land-owning communities to develop agri-wildlife economies, so that people and nature can thrive.

Our approach is based on social, environmental and economic sustainability. This means we focus on optimising job creation, growing SMMEs, and increasing the value of the community’s asset base.

ESA achieves this by partnering with people through a recognised structure like CPA or Trust to actively develop a sustainable local economy. 

Then, we walk the long road of building trust and understanding, working through queries and objections within the community, and seeking funding opportunities to realise our vision of a rural agri-wildlife economy, and a better life for all.
