    Geography, History and Economy

    Area: 8 007km²
    Description: Cederberg Local Municipality is located along the upper west coast of the Western Cape province, approximately 200km from Cape Town. The municipal area is bordered by the spectacular Cederberg Mountains in the east and the Atlantic Ocean in the west. The main access road, the N7, is a vital economic corridor linking the economies of the Western Cape, Northern Cape and Namibia. Due to its scenic natural beauty, ecotourism is considered a major future economic growth sector. Politically, it is the only municipality in the west coast region that is controlled by the African National Congress. It is also strategically located on the Cape-Namibia Corridor, and the N7 National Road links it with the Northern Cape province. If this corridor was identified for future infrastructure upgrades and investments, it would be of paramount importance to ensure that the very basic infrastructure is in place to facilitate future development, whilst simultaneously planning for future growth. The municipality has its focus on the development of the rural poor and, in particular, investing in the youth and final year school-goers to secure their future.
