District Development Model Dialogue Session: What are the prospects and pitfalls in the context of the DDM? Is intergovernmental planning and development achievable?
Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic exposed the fault lines in the manner in which government has been planning, budgeting and implementing its programmes, which reflected pervasive levels of inequality and disparate development across society. Is it possible that the programmatic approach advocated by the DDM to integrated planning, budgeting and implementation by all of government and society could attain the short-, medium and long-term developmental outcomes and impact that the country needs?
To this end, the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA), in association with its implementing partner, the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), which is the implementing agent of the DDM in OR Tambo, Ethekwini and Waterburg Districts, hereby cordially invites you to join us in conversation as we unpack and deliberate on the themes critical to the DDM implementation. Accordingly, the localisation, spatialisation and evidence-based planning features of the various public and private interventions at a district/metro level are considered key to the overall execution and institutionalisation of the DDM.
