DROUGHT TOLERANT MAIZE § The drought tolerant maize was developed under a Public-Private Partnership DROUGHT TOLERANT MAIZE § The drought tolerant maize was developed under a Public-Private Partnership (of which ARC is a member). The project is conducted in South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Howard G. Buffett Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). § In 2014, the ARC distributed 10 000 seed packs (of 500 grams each) to smallholders in Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, Free State and KZN. The intention was to promote the new drought tolerant variety amongst the farmers. Farmers planted either in the 2014/ 15 or the 2015/ 16 season. Therefore, exact information on the numbers of farmers who planted the seed is difficult to provide. § Recorded yield for the drought-tolerant maize varieties in Limpopo was 1. 14 t/ ha in comparison to previous yields of 0. 6 t/ ha. In the North West Province, farmers achieved 2 t/ ha vs 1. 5 t/ ha (with an average rainfall of 250 mm rainfall). § There was no seed available for commercial scale plantings in 2015/ 16. § ARC contracted three companies to produce seed. Just over 70 tons have been produced and the seed is available. 4

FMD CHALLENGES AND LUMPY SKIN DISEASE FMD In Limpopo § Every ward is covered FMD CHALLENGES AND LUMPY SKIN DISEASE FMD In Limpopo § Every ward is covered by Animal Health Technicians (AHTs) who are supported by veterinarians. § THE AHTs refer relevant cases to veterinarians, but are able to attend to basic cases. § AHT’s are supervised by Control AHT’s and in Limpopo there is one for each of the 25 municipalities. § These Controls are supported by a Veterinarian, but these veterinarians may be responsible for more than one municipality. § 200 000 Cattle are vaccinated at least three times a year in the designated FMD vaccination zones including Mpumalanga Lumpy Skin § On Lumpy Skin Disease, some animals had shown signs of the disease and under normal circumstances, farmers are advised to vaccinate against the disease on time to avoid animals getting sick from the disease. 10

DAFF SHOULD FACILITATE POLICY AND PROGRAMME COHERENCE WITH PROVINCES In strengthening institutional mechanisms for DAFF SHOULD FACILITATE POLICY AND PROGRAMME COHERENCE WITH PROVINCES In strengthening institutional mechanisms for integrated policy, planning, monitoring and evaluation in the sector, DAFF has done the following: § Developed an integrated planning framework that has been approved by EXCO. The framework informs all departmental planning matters. § Operation Tshwaraganang concept document has been developed which directs engagements with PDAs and SOEs regarding aligning planning and reporting on sector priorities. § SOEs Governance and Reporting framework has been developed, terms of reference have been developed to establish a task team made up of senior officials from SOEs and DAFF to finalise the framework for approval and implementation. § DAFF organised QPRM in June 2016 attended by PDAs HOD, SOEs CEOs and members from commodity associations who all participated in the development of the sector priorities and high level deliverables. Agreement was reached that all PDAs would support in the delivery of the priorities. 11

DAFF SHOULD FACILITATE POLICY AND PROGRAMME COHERENCE WITH PROVINCES…. § Sector Priorities and High DAFF SHOULD FACILITATE POLICY AND PROGRAMME COHERENCE WITH PROVINCES…. § Sector Priorities and High Level Deliverables are in the process of been published in the department. § Workshops will be conducted from November 7 -11 to review transversal indicators Workshops will be attended by managers from PDAs, SOEs and DAFF to align indicators and importantly to ensure that new priorities like RAAVC are responded to. indicators. § Verification report is been compiled and recommendations discussed at EXCO quarterly concerning visits to conditional grants supported projects. § Outcomes Coordinators have been nominated at a level of DDGs and department is hosting Minister Service delivery forum quarterly, these are some of the efforts in improving coordination of sector performance by DAFF. 12

AGOA AGREEMENT § 2014 US indicated that SA may not be eligible for AGOA AGOA AGREEMENT § 2014 US indicated that SA may not be eligible for AGOA benefits if certain Sanitary and Phytosanitary issues were not finalised. These included: o Agriculture issues: Poultry, Beef and Pork (SPS issues); and o Other issues included; GI’s and Tariff Differentials between US and EU, the pending Investment Bill and the Private Security Bill. § May 2015 Cabinet decision on BSE. § AGOA is very important (job creation). § Paris negotiations June 2015 agreed the following: o A rebate quota of 65, 000 tons for bone in cuts on the Anti Dumping tariff; o This would increase on annual basis based on an agreed formula of the increase in domestic consumption yr – if not a positive number the status quo number would remain; o If possible 50 % should be given to emerging importers; and o South Africa would work with US to ensure that US Poultry, Beef and Pork cuts would have access within the required health and safety regulations (Sanitary Issues). 13

MACRO & SOCIO ECONOMIC IMPACT (AGOA AGREEMENT) Impact on production Impact on capital investment MACRO & SOCIO ECONOMIC IMPACT (AGOA AGREEMENT) Impact on production Impact on capital investment Impact on operational impact on governmental income Impact on disposable income Total incremental impact Total dynamic impact § § § § § Labour Impact Macro Economic Impact 3, 54% -R 196 686 326 -R 491 558 969 -R 534 535 088 R 945 474 622 -R 277 305 762 R 5 019 109 between between 4, 29% -R 237 990 455 -R 594 786 352 -R 646 787 457 R 1 144 024 292 -R 335 539 972 R 6 073 122 3, 54% -1854 -7011 -6041 6409 -8496 -6491 between between 4, 29% -2243 -8483 -7310 7755 -10281 -7854 The dynamic net effect in terms of GDP is positive and employment is negative which means that the economy will win in terms of economic growth (GDP) and employment creation. This is only if a the total benefit of cheaper poultry meat is transferred to the consumer. The GDP will increase between R 5 and R 6 million and about 6500 to 7850 potential jobs can be lost. It is important to note that the GDP as well as the potential jobs, is an average value/number over the period 2013 -2033. This means, for example, the potential jobs will decrease between 6500 and 7850 on average for a specific year over the programming period; The positive GDP figure is relative small but the impact on employment is significant. In South Africa, where employment is crucial, this aspect should be taken into account. The negative impacts on the economy is created by the less investment between R 200 million and R 240 million with a loss in employment of 1850 and 2250. Reduction in the local production of broilers of R 490 million and R 595 million with job losses of 7000 to 8500. Government income will decrease with R 535 to R 650 million and job losses of 6 000 to 7 300 If the reduced price is passed on to the consumer disposable income will increase R 945 million and R 1. 15 million and job creation will take place with an increase in employment of between 6400 and 7800. The total incremental impact is negative to the economy of R 277 to R 336 million with job losses of between 8500 and 10300. The dynamic impact (over time when the economy finds equilibrium) is positive for the GDP, between R 5 to R 6, 1 million. The net effect on employment for the economy is between 6500 and 7850. 14

COMMODITY: PORK IMPORTS (AGOA AGREEMENT) § Contentious related to AGOA agreements were around imports COMMODITY: PORK IMPORTS (AGOA AGREEMENT) § Contentious related to AGOA agreements were around imports of Pork, Poultry and Beef from the USA Imports of Pork from the USA § Measures for the control of Porcine Respiratory and Reproductive Syndrome (PRRS), On the basis of perceived risk for PRRS: this pig disease does not occur in South Africa § South Africa is among few countries without PRRS- imports are controlled by allowing countries with PRRS either export recognizable cuts (where all risk materials such as lymph nodes and connective tissue have been removed) for direct unrestricted sale. Imports of Beef from the USA § During the Negotiations, USA requested SA to allow for imports beef sourced from Mexico for Direct slaughter to be exported to SA Import of Poultry § Main issue is the amendments to the post import monitoring of poultry from the USA on the basis of Salmonella, particularly S. Enteriditis and S. Typhimurium 15

DAFF INTEGRATION PROCESS – RECONFIGURATION OF THE MACRO ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE § The Department commenced DAFF INTEGRATION PROCESS – RECONFIGURATION OF THE MACRO ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE § The Department commenced with the reconfiguration of the macro organisational structure into an integrated model (agriculture, forestry and fisheries). This project is critical in ensuring integrated service delivery and our ability to respond to the mandate of the department. § Both the stakeholder consultations as well as reviewing internal business processes were concluded. § These consultations evaluated areas of Organisational Culture, DAFF’s “Service Delivery Model”, DAFF business processes, and DAFF Structure. § Outcomes of these consultations were validated through a survey with a response rate of over 70% of SMS Members. 16

DAFF INTEGRATION PROCESS – RECONFIGURATION OF THE MACRO ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE § There is continuous DAFF INTEGRATION PROCESS – RECONFIGURATION OF THE MACRO ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE § There is continuous engagement with organised labour that has been included in the oversight task team to the project. § To ensure institutionalisation of the outcomes of this project, we have also established internal technical reference groups that looked at the technical outputs from our service provider to ensure seamless institutionalisation of the outcomes and skills transfer. § The DAFF communications team was prepared to start with information sessions henceforth to inform all DAFF employees of any major milestones achieved in this project. § When the project is ready for implementation, due care will also be on the mainstreaming of change management in the entire roll-out of the reconfiguration of the Macro organisational structure. § Since structure follows strategy and the DAFF strategy still needs to be fine-tuned and finalised, and hence the structure will thereafter be thoroughly addressed through the reconfiguration project. 17

GENDER REPRESENTATION AT SMS LEVELS - DAFF § The transformation of the workforce to GENDER REPRESENTATION AT SMS LEVELS - DAFF § The transformation of the workforce to improve the representativeness of females at senior management level receives constant focus. § The Gender Equality Framework Implementation Plan was developed and approved to enable the Department to improve compliance with respect to gender mainstreaming. § In terms of gender, as at 30 September 2016 the percentage of male representation is 55%, whereas female representation is 45% at SMS level. § To purposely improve the transformation, all SMS (and overall DAFF vacancies) recruitment processes are subjected to accommodate equity needs. § As at 30 September 2016, the number of officials within SMS is 125. 18

HORSE MACKEREL EXPERIMENT § Section 83 of the MRLA any citizen of the Republic HORSE MACKEREL EXPERIMENT § Section 83 of the MRLA any citizen of the Republic can apply for an experimental permit § In 2010, Global Pact, a 100% BEE company owned and managed by previously disadvantaged individuals (PDIs), submitted an application to conduct a practical experiment on Horse Mackerel. § The focus on horse mackerel by Global Pact was because currently almost all horse mackerel caught in South African waters is exported to countries in West Africa for consumption by poor communities in those countries § Global Pact’s view is that most black communities in South Africa are almost similar in social and economic standing as the communities in West Africa and can therefore benefit from consuming horse mackerel as a cheaper alternative source of protein § The application was sent to the New Fisheries Scientific Working Group (NFSWG) via the Customer Services offices at Fore. Trust Building, as this is the usual process for all applications to follow, however the NFSWG chair recommended to then CD: FR&D the application be turned down. § In 2012, Global Pact resubmitted the proposal and between then and 2014 was a long processes of resubmission and assessment of the proposal. § In December 2015, the DAFF approved the proposal as it deemed to meet the broader objectives of government (food security in particular). 20

HORSE MACKEREL EXPERIMENT: COURT CASE § In 2016, the South African Deep Sea Trawling HORSE MACKEREL EXPERIMENT: COURT CASE § In 2016, the South African Deep Sea Trawling Industry Association (SADSTIA) and other fishing companies brought a court case against the department requesting the permit be ‘revoked’. § The lead person for SADSTIA who is the author of the affidavit worked for the department and was CD: FR&D during the period this permit was declined. § In August 2016, the department opposed both the interdict and the application to ‘revoke’ the permit. § In August 24, the department wins the interdict part as the applicants withdrew during the court proceeding. § In October 2016, the department proposed to settle the litigation given that the permit granted to Global Pact is valid until 14 December 2016, and the judgement would not be given before March 2017 at least. § The matter is considered settled. § The Department is committed to pursue the socio-economic horse mackerel experiment in 2017 and until such a time the Fisheries Branch is able to confidently determine the viability of harvesting this fish in the South African waters. § The Department is also committed to restructuring the horse mackerel industry to ensure local processing and sale of mackerel as opposed to the current practise of exporting the entire qouta without local beneficiation. 21

PROTECTION OF THE SEAS § Poaching in South Africa is part of a global PROTECTION OF THE SEAS § Poaching in South Africa is part of a global transnational organised criminal activity and should be tackled by all law enforcement agencies § The problem is rife along the South African coastline particularly in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape and corruption amongst government officials and associated drug dealing activities aggravate this challenge. § Other problems include: o Insufficient capacity to protect the resource at sea (size of the coastline). o Lenient sanctions for environmental crimes. o Lack of knowledge of marine crimes by law enforcement officials. o Porous borders. o Protection of criminal syndicates by communities. o Link between abalone poaching and illicit trade in narcotics, money laundering and other criminal activities. o Insufficient funds for Vessels operating costs. 22
