Local Economic Development

The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (1996) provides a framework for the role of local government in Local Economic Development (LED). According to Sections 152 (c) and 153 (a) of the South African Constitution, local government must “promote social and economic development” and it must “structure and manage its administration, and budgeting and planning processes to give priority to the basic needs of the community and promote social and economic development of the community”.

The Department of Cooperative Governance (DCoG) is a national government department within the Ministry of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) whose strategic objective is to coordinate the implementation of sustainable economic development initiatives at the local level, amongst others. Beyond job creation and other growth targets, DCoG has a vested interest on whether development initiatives have any impact on the ability of localities to generate revenue, preferable long-term income generating streams. It follows then that DCoG should want to increase private sector investment, and to ensure that such investments lead to sustainable jobs, for citizens to graduate from being indigents.
