| Luve Wetland and Donga Rehabilitation Project
The fund has approved the Luve wetland and donga Rehabilitation Project. The project is currently ongoing and the aim is to protect the wetland in the Luve wetland area. The project is done through an NGO called Citizen Empowerment (CEC) and a contract was signed between SEA and CEC.
A partner for the programme is MTN, who has contributed to complete the fencing of the wetlands as well as provided additional funding of E30,000. Focus has also been aimed at tree planting and gabion construction, both which are necessary actions in the area of Luve.
|| Lobamba Waste Management Project
This project was funded to help improve the waste management issues at Lobamba Inkhundla. All around Lobamba waste is being collected and from Monday to Thursday a tractor is running with a licensed employer driver to collect it. Furthermore Lobamba youth centre has set up an administrative office as a service pay point. The current status of the project is running efficiently and making progress.
In order to implement this project the Board wanted to guarantee the capacity of the community. Last year in 2013, Swaziland Cooperative College was facilitating and arranging the workshop on training environmental projects management.
The success of the project is the stakeholders (waste producers) participation and involvement which also brings sustainability to the project.
Lawuba Wetland Protection
The projects aim is to protect 6ha wetlands in the area. The forming of a working committee took longer than expected, which resulted in that the project has been delayed.
Sigwe Wetland Protection Project
Implemented in 2010 and a positive effect of the project is that the fauna has developed. The women in the area have from raw material started to harvesting handcraft. During the rainy season the spongy effect of the wetland has been observed.

|| Sivule Wetland Protection
Another project implemented is the Sivule wetland protection project. It included a wetland area of 12ha in size and it covered the boundaries of three chiefdoms. Several meetings has been held with all chiefdoms, but because of conflicts between these, the project has not been able to start at this point.
