About Us

Hosted by Isandla Institute, the GGLN enables knowledge sharing, knowledge production, and collective influence for non-profit organisations concerned about local democracy and development.

Bringing together civil society organisations working in the field of local governance.

Sharing the common goal of promoting participatory, effective, accountable and pro-poor local governance, the network strives to provide an interface for civil society organisations to network and share information towards strengthening local democracy in South Africa. It also serves to support the sustained interaction between local governance NGOs as a means to share experiences, learning, good practices and ways of improving interventions. Through the network, member organisations build alliances and partnerships with other organisations which enable them to incorporate a wider range of strategies, as well as broaden their impact. This in turn contributes toward the development of a comprehensive and integrated civil society intervention strategy in the local governance sector.

The GGLN’s vision is to create a strong civil society network that harnesses and builds the collective expertise and energy of its members to contribute meaningfully to building and sustaining a system of participatory and developmental local government in South Africa.
