About IDC

Agency Development and Support

adsSupporting urban regeneration

The Agency Development and Support Department works with municipalities to unlock the economic potential of marginalised areas.

Very often, these areas – rural regions, townships and underdeveloped provinces – face the harshest economic conditions, with high unemployment.

We work with local agencies and partners and since 2002, 34 agencies have been established.

These agencies focus on:

  • Promoting and developing economic potential on a local and/or regional basis;
  • Leveraging public and private resources for development around opportunities which offer investment, employment, economic and development prospects;
  • Fostering innovation and entrepreneurial potential;
  • We focus on spatial development in a socially responsible manner; and
  • Changing perceptions to attract capital investment and private sector participation.
