Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

COMPLETION DATE: December 2009

As part of the ongoing programme of support to local municipalities, we developed an evaluation framework to assess the credibility of the IDP strategies, Spatial Development Frameworks and Human Settlement Plans for 8 local municipalities within the Western Cape. The gaps and lack of alignment between frameworks and plans were indentified and recommendations prepared for addressing these gaps.

Our Innovation: we developed a clear and accessible graphic dashboard that summarized the key gaps and alignment issues.
