Abstract

Despite decades of anti-fire rhetoric and different legislation regulating the use of fire, poor rural people in South Africa continue to burn vegetation outside the recommended periods. This paper explores some of the possible reasons for this uncontrolled burning by rural people. Environmental degradation, whether by fire or other things, is not an ecological issue alone, it is as deep as people's histories, economic and political situation and, therefore, has to be dealt with and understood in that context. - (AJC)
