Short Description:

Overall goal

The objective of this exercise is to compile a detailed project plan for enhancing the capacity of local government to engage meaningfully and systematically with vulnerable groups and communities in order to plan high impact socio-economic programmes. The approach of the project will be to focus on the programming unit in the local municipality (LED etc.) in order to build its strategic capacity to engage in planning processes with local rural and vulnerable communities. This will require a triangular relationship between the local government partner, civil society, and a technical support agency.

The project activities to be undertaken include: (i) A Situational Analysis of Local Government in Eastern Cape; and, (ii) A Project Formulation.

Umhlaba Development Services will formulate a Project Plan based on the outcomes of the Situational Analysis, and further engagement with key stakeholders and analysis of data. The formulation will be compiled utilising the logical framework approach, and provide a detailed plan for the intended project.
