Local Government in South Africa: Responses to Urban-Rural Challenges

The Dullah Omar Institute's Multilevel Government Project, with the support of the South African Local Government Association, produced the Country Report on South Africa in the framework of the H2020-MSCA-RISE-2018 project “LoGov - Local Government and the Changing Urban-Rural Interplay”.

LoGov aims to provide solutions for local governments that address the fundamental challenges resulting from urbanisation. LoGov identifies, evaluates, compares, and shares innovative practices that cope with the impact of changing urban-rural relations in five major local government areas: (1) local responsibilities and public services, (2) local financial arrangements, (3) structure of local government, (4) intergovernmental relations of local governments, and (5) people’s participation in local decision-making. The Country Report on South Africa provides an overview of the system of local government in South Africa and can be accessed here.
