Integrated Training Area Management Programme

Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) has the objective of effectively balance military training with sustainable use of military training areas to ensure that such areas remain suitable for future and long-term utilisation. To ensure such a balance, impact management through detailed ecological management initiatives such as integrated planning, effective zoning of training areas, infrastructure management, veld and habitat management, biodiversity, conserving rare and endangered species, the sustainable utilisation of natural resources such as water and energy as well as the rehabilitation of land, soil and vegetation on continuous basis is of utmost importance.
