Abstract

This document is the proceedings of a remarkable workshop held in Skukuza, Kruger National Park (KNP) from 17-19 September 2013 and jointly organised by SANParks and Resource Africa. The aim of the workshop was to set the stage for the development of rural community rhino farms on the boundary of KNP. Amongst the participants were a number of international experts on international trade and community institutions.

The conclusion of the workshop was that a non-lethal trade in white rhino horn offered the highest-valued land use possible from the semi-arid savannas of South Africa with the potential to outcompete all other forms of agricultural and livestock production. However, to achieve this land use requires a legal trade in rhino horn. The workshop examined the feasibility of a “futures trade” in rhino horn conducted on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
