The South African-based Sustainability Institute supports project implementation in the region. Activities are focused in Zambia, led by Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM) Zambia; in Namibia led by the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF) in collaboration with the Namibian Organic Association (NOA); and in South Africa led by the South African Organic Sector Organisation (SAOSO). The project has also extended to Malawi bringing on board Kusamala and Soils, Food and Health Communities organisations. The other hubs are implemented by GIZ in North, West and Eastern and Central Africa.
