Category : Agricultural Maps
Publish Date : 29 Oct 2015
The Metro Growth and Development Strategy is the equivalent at the City level of the National and Provincial Development Plans. • Why it’s being developed The economy of the Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality is relatively small, but it is the second largest metropolitan municipality in the Eastern Cape. It contributes 1.7% to the South African economy and 21.2% to the Eastern Cape’s economy. While relatively stable over the past decade, it has performed below the national average. The document is being developed as a response to current challenges faced by the city such as: ? Inequality: the Metro’s GINI coefficient stands at 0.566 ? The poverty rate: this stands at 46.5% ? Literacy: 19.5% of the population of the Metro are illiterate ? Unemployment: The unemployment rate in the metro is very high and stood at 21% in 2013. Company closures and retrenchments have probably worsened the situation in recent times.These maps are visual portrayal the above mentioned challenges

Land Restitution and Farm Workers' Rights

Sub Title : can't we do better
Category : Presentation
Publish Date : 04 Sep 2014
Government has recently passed the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Act which re-opens the window for restitution claims to allow people to put in claims until 2018.It also explicitly allows people dispossessed under Betterment to put in restitution claims. A new policy proposal on strengthening the Relative Rights of People Working the Land, suggests that 50% of ownership of farms should be transferred to farm workers. Both these measures however face extensive criticism from rural development activists and practitioners.

Backward capitalism in rural South Africa

Sub Title : prospects for accelerating accumulation in the Eastern Cape
Category : ECSECC Working Papers
Publish Date : 11 Mar 2014
This working paper begins with a brief historical discussion of recent international and national macroeconomic trends, before focussing on its manin theme by providing a more disaggregated discussion of forces of production in rural South Africa and of the performance of the agricultural sector at the national and sub-sectoral levels. It will be argued that the long-term lack of dynamism of capitalist development in South Africa as a whole is reflected in and helps to explain failures of rural development; these failures have resulted in acute suffering in, for example, the Eastern Cape, where the barriers to dynamic capitalist growth remain particularly high, (although not insurmountable). The most disaggregated examples of crop and farm-specific failure are taken from the Eastern Cape, but the ambitious aim is to provide arguments that are relevant to most rural areas in South Africa, as well as a few arguments that may be relevant to macroeconomic policy making.
