Capacity Building

South African municipalities are faced with unique challenges related to the history of the country such as poverty and inadequate infrastructure, among other things. It is of great importance to contribute to capacity building at the municipal level so as to improve municipal governance and public service provision. In light of the dramatic increase in service delivery protests throughout the country over the last few years, the improvement of governance and service delivery is seen as key to the development and stability of the country.

  • Roles and Responsibilities
