The constitution enjoins the three spheres of government to recognise their distinct mandates with due appreciation of their interdependencies and interrelatedness. The summit, therefore, aims to strengthen and support the local government as per section 154 of our constitution. In terms of the act, the national government and provincial governments are obligated to support and strengthen municipalities to manage their own affairs and perform their functions.
Our State of Local Government Report, amongst other matters, confirms the underlying root causes of the less ideal Municipality and the shortcomings of Cooperative Governance that manifest at the coalface of government – in municipalities where communities experience government.

The 2022 Local Government Summit serves as a coalescent platform to hone good practices for replication and an opportunity to find sustainable solutions to challenges facing local government and cooperative governance by extension.
