Good Governance Surveys

Over the past few years, Afesis-corplan, in partnership with PCRD and independent researchers, has been undertaking surveys of good governance in various municipalities across South Africa. Initial studies focused on local municipalities as both the entry points as well as the units of analysis. In 2006, some changes were introduced in the survey methodology. These changes were necessitated partly by the need to effect a more productive follow-up process that would lead to purposeful interventions in areas where gaps had been identified. A decision was therefore made to the effect that, henceforth, district municipalities (DMs) would be the entry points to the local municipalities (LMs) under their jurisdiction. This meant that the DMs would in turn be viewed as core partners, stakeholders to the process and the commissioning agents for the GGS and would also share the responsibility of following through the recommendations to ensure that they were implemented in consultation with their LM counterparts.
