Dezentralisierte Integrierte Ländliche Entwicklung

Contract partner: Österreichisches Nord-Süd-Institut für Entwicklungszusammenarbeit GmbH (wurde aufgelöst)Country: Südafrika Funding amount: € 339.033,27Project start: 01.09.2003End: 31.12.2006

Short Description:

Overall goal

The project aims to support the implementation of two key decentralised rural development processes in the Amatole District of the Eastern Cape, namely the Land Reform and Settlement Plan (LRSP), and locally-driven development arising out of the successful settlement of restitution claims. Both of these processes aim to reduce poverty in the Amatole District. Furthermore, there is considerable policy focus, both nationally and provincial, on these processes and therefore their successful implementation would have a major policy impact. The target groups are communities that have insecure land tenure rights or are landless and which lack adequate infrastructure and services (in the case of the LRSP), and ten communities in the Keiskammahoek area which have recently concluded restitution settlement agreements with the South African government. The main activities will be co-ordination, networking and brokering, institution building, information dissemination and facilitation.

    • Others - various other donors are listed in ADA’s annual business report.
  • Type of Aid – Aid modalities: classifies transfers from the donor to the first recipient of funds such as budget support, core contributions and pooled programmes and funds to CSOs and multilateral organisations, project-type interventions, experts and other technical assistance, scholarships and student costs in donor countries, debt relief, administrative costs and other in-donor expenditures.
  • Purpose/ sector code: classifies the specific area of the recipient’s economic or social structure, funded by a bilateral contribution.
  • Tied/Untied: Untied aid is defined as loans and grants whose proceeds are fully and freely available to finance procurement from all OECD countries and substantially all developing countries. Transactions are considered tied unless the donor has, at the time of the aid offer, clearly specified a range of countries eligible for procurement which meets the tests for “untied” aid.
