Local Economic Development

Changing lives for the betterChanging lives for the betterIn line with the New Growth Path, a framework that guides the national government's policy to create jobs, reduce inequality and alleviate poverty, the ADS department hopes to change the lives of many South Africans living in marginalised areas, specifically townships and rural areas. To this end, the department has a Spatial Interventions programme targeting these communities which, 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.

The over-arching aim of the programme is to allow the Industrial Development Corporation to intervene effectively to address the socio-economic and developmental needs of a particular targeted area. Through these interventions, the IDC will provide an appropriate response resulting in an improvement in the functioning of the targeted area's socio-economic conditions.
