Spatial Interventions

Providing direct social upliftment interventions to communitiesProviding direct social upliftment interventions to communitiesMany communities, by virtue of their specific hardships, unequal development and levels of poverty, require a direct and focused intervention to improve their economic circumstances and prospects. In such circumstances, ADS chips in to provide direct funding to establish or support projects resulting in an improvement in the functioning of a targeted area's socio-economic conditions.

Any interventions by ADS are based on the following:

  • Accurate, adequate and appropriate data on the area (profiles and audits);
  • The identification of real opportunities, assets and potential of the area;
  • The identification of real threats, challenges and obstacles;
  • The participation and ownership of processes by local stakeholders;
  • Strategic planning processes;
  • Identification of real, appropriate and strategic economic opportunities and strategies; and
  • The need for a credible leading capability to mobilise stakeholders and implement projects/programmes.

Two projects that have benefited from the spatial interventions programme are the Rural Development Initiative and the Doringbaai Project.

In 2011/12, three programmes totalling R4.4-million, of which R2.4-million was from third party funds, were approved in Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape. The ADS intends to roll out programmes to the value of R18-million in the next financial year.
