Regenerative Restoration Targets for South Africa

The non-labour costs of all the Rescue Earth Initiatives is +/- R600 Billion. Around R6 Billion per initiative per year! All the labour is provided by volunteers.

The total non-labour costs of all the initiatives, including UN SDGs, is +/- R2.5 Trillion which is about 10% of South Africa’s GDP over 5 years. Approximately R1.25 Trillion is expected to be donated by international sources. With a 50% subsidy from international donors, South Africa will thus only need to spend around 5% of GDP to meet its 5 Year Targets.

R600 Billion will be raised locally and spent on the Rescue Earth Initiatives listed bellow.
