The vision of the Breede-Gouritz CMA (BGCMA) was developed around the question of how the BGCMA can make a positive contribution and engender meaningful change within a broader social context. The main elements of the vision are inclusion and participation (of all stakeholders), mediation (between competing environmental and human priorities), ensuring availability of good quality water and a responsibility to assist in eradicating poverty.

The vision statement that succinctly summarises all these elements is:

“Quality water for all, forever”
