CCS Seminar: A 5 Year Review of South Africa’s National Development Plan and its Developmental State Ambition

Speaker: Isaac Khambule
Date: Wednesday 29 May 2019
Time: 13:00-14:00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room A726, Level 7, Shepstone, Howard College, UKZN

In 2017, South Africa marked the first five years since the adoption of the country’s National Development Plan (NDP). Chapter 13 of the South African National Development Plan outlines the country’s capable developmental state ambitions as being driven by the need to address historical socio-economic injustices and to reduce the ongoing triple challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality. The NDP identified three priority areas - parliamentary oversight, accountability in state-owned enterprises and the performance of local government - that need improvement to materialise a capable developmental state. This seminar interrogates whether South Africa is on track to reach this goal by reviewing parliamentary oversight, accountability in state-owned enterprises and the ability of local government to deliver basic services over the first 6 years of the NDP (2012-2018).
