The City of Johannesburg’s investment in the Bruma Lake rehabilitation, undertaken by Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA), remains a shining beacon of how environmental rehabilitations and upgrades can be a catalyst for attracting private investment, unlocking development potential, stimulating local economies, while improving the environment and the quality of life of residents.

This World Environment Health Day, 26 September, a day which celebrates positive environmental action and creating health-supportive environments, we focus on the impact of the Bruma Lake environment rehabilitation has had on the community.
