A draft rural development strategy for the Northern Cape


Phuhlisani has now produced four drafts of the rural development strategy which is currently being reviewed by senior management before being presented to the MEC and Cabinet.

An initial strategy draft was discussed at a key stakeholder review workshop held in Kimberley on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th March 2010. The participants who were primarily from a variety of national and provincial line departments and municipalities  made important commentary and input have been incorporated into five linkedstrategy papers and a four page summary guide.
