Community Empowerment for Effective Delivery of the National Development Plan
Start Date: May 27, 2013
End Date: May 31, 2013
Venue: Braamfontein, Johannesburg
Description: Khanya-African Institute for Community-Driven Development’s (Khanya-AICDD) vision is a world in which poor people are managing development to improve their livelihoods. The organisation’s mission is to work with partners to transform development systems to support the livelihoods of poor people in Africa.

Khanya-AICDD is hosting a workshop entitled ‘Community Empowerment for Effective Delivery of the National Development Plan (NDP)’ from 27-31 May 2013 in Johannesburg.

The NDP requires our best efforts to ensure a better life for all. The NDP will need the active engagement of communities, and their involvement and contributions to ensure success.

A key challenge is how communities are engaged and encouraged to own and contribute to efforts made by government. The NDP recognises that an unintended outcome of government’s efforts has been the reduction in ‘incentives for citizens to be direct participants of their own development’. It is very important therefore to redress this and empower communities to take active and responsible roles in their development.

Khanya-African Institute for Community-Driven Development, which has long been in partnership with National, Provincial and Local Governments, has organised a workshop to help pool ideas and experiences for how Community Empowerment efforts by all levels of government can effectively support the NDP.

If you are unable to attend this workshop, contact us to request details of further workshops and/or tailor-made in-house support for your municipality or Department.
