The article addresses the following question: has the role of ICTs contributed positively or negatively as a monitoring and surveillance technique in a biodiversity area of South Africa?. It goes without saying that, ICTs have enabled new ways of doing things and traditional strategic advantages have become obsolete. What positive and negative roles have ICTs played in maintaining and promoting growth in a biodiversity area in South Africa? thisĀ  remains to be tackled in this article.
The article is intended to help policymakers in developing countries to, define a framework for the appropriate and effective use of ICTs in a biodiversity area. Finally the article attempts to describe a conceptual framework for understanding that role.
