dc.description.abstract This dissertation takes its lead from the need to add to the debate issues of institutional arrangements when evaluating the effectiveness of biodiversity conservation programs. The particular case in point is the Succulent Karoo Ecosystem Program (SKEP), which was initially set up by a NGO, Conservation International (CI), and thereafter transferred to another host institution, a national parastatal called the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI). This dissertation set out to investigate the optimal institutional mechanism for coordinating SKEP. in light of its transition from CI to SANB!. This was done by evaluating the current coordination mechanism. A systems theory approach guided the research. An action research approach ensured that the results would be practical to the coordination unit of the SKEP program. Grounded theory analysis was used to analyze and make sense of the data and provide guidance on the functions and structure of the coordination unit and its supporting structures. en_ZA
