State of Local Governance Project

The GGLN continues to make its mark in the public sphere through its annual 'State of Local Governance’ publication, which comprises 10 contributions from member organisations including peer reviewed papers and short project profiles / perspectives related to an annually identified theme. As our flagship research project, this publication offers a civil society-based assessment of the key challenges, debates and progress with governance and development at local level in South Africa.

The GGLN convenes one to two Members Meetings per annum, which create an opportunity for members to reflect, learn and share their work and related challenges and successes. These Members Meetings create important opportunities for knowledge sharing, networking and sector strengthening.
