Integrated Sustainable Development Plan for Kokstad & Franklin Greater Kokstad Local Municipality,
Kwa-Zulu Natal, Eastern Cape, South Africa
COMPLETION DATE: October 2012
CLIENT: GKM Local Municipality and the DBSA
The Project: The Integrated Sustainable Development Plan is a long-term plan that aims to think more broadly and holistically about Kokstad and Franklin’s development and provide visionary direction for the next 25 years. These strategic objectives are formulated within a sustainability framework that brings together the complex issues of environmental limits (planetary boundaries) and an adequate social foundation (meeting basic human needs). The strategic objectives and plans of the ISDP will integrate existing plans (SDFs, LED strategies, housing plans, etc.) into a coherent plan that guides the sustainable development of Kokstad and Franklin into the future.
