The South African Working for Wetlands program originated from the Working for Water Program, and therefore shares many similarities. The program performs rehabilitation projects that are intended to produce sustainable environmental outcomes while employing local individuals that are most affected by poverty and unemployment. As with the Working for Water program, there is debate that the program would be better classified as a public works program due to the funding sources and project locations. There are some funds for the program that originate from international donors as well.
