Short Description:

Overall goal

Already in 1999 the Austrian Development Co-operation began exploring the notion of a capacity building programme for local government in the Limpopo Province and commissioned a situation analysis to determine broad needs and interests . Although the project idea has not yet been realised till now the Austrian Development Co-operation and the different stakeholders have maintained contact. Through this dialogue it has been determined to implement a project which will support the promotion of participatory governance including development and mutual accountability between local government and its population.

Umhlaba Development Services is contracted with the objective to compile a project plan for supporting local government in its engagement with communities for development in Limpopo Province.
