Greener Governance in Southern SADC

Success Report on Medium Sized Local Authorities

In 2002, when the WSSD took place in Johannesburg, KAS South Africa in cooperation with the Centre for Environmental Management at the North West University started a Greener Governance workshop series for municipal managers of medium sized cities from South Africa and neighbouring countries. The aim of the training was to sensitize the participants for environmental issues on local level, to equip them with the practical know-how to tackle the problems and to develop a network in the Southern SADC region. Last year KAS financed a case study in order to evaluate the success of the workshop series and to assess additional training needs.
