Governance and Planning Support

Development through partnerships

Programme Purpose

The purpose of the programme is to strengthen the building of a developmental state through providing strategic governance support in the development and roll out of national, provincial and local plans, strategies and frameworks in the Eastern Cape. The programme achieves its purpose by facilitating democratic participation by relevant stakeholders in the form of consultations, partnerships, capacity building and advocacy; resulting in outcomes that are shared and owned. This programme mainly is focused on one of ECSECCs outcomes and its associated intermediate outcomes:

  • Impact area 1: A developmental state that actively leads development through partnerships
    • Improved policy decision- making through the provision of strategic planning support and advice.
    • Shared provincial development agenda through effective platforms for engagement

Outcome 2 and 3 are supported indirectly by the capable developmental state and its partnership model as outlined in the 2020-2025 strategic plan.
