Invitation to the launch of "Local Democracy in Action: A Civil Society Perspective on Local Governance in South Africa"

On 8 May 2008 the GGLN will officially launch it's report entitled "Local Democracy in Action: A Civil Society Perspective on Local Governance in South Africa."

The report is the culmination of eighteen months of research by the members of the network. The project has sought to produce a civil society-based assessment of the key challenges, debates and areas of progress with regard to local governance and development in South Africa, and to provide local government policy-makers and practitioners with practical recommendations to improve policy, guidelines, systems and interventions where necessary. The report is also intended to be used to build awareness of, and mobilise support within civil society and appropriate government institutions for the key advocacy positions of the GGLN.

The launch will take place at the Centre for Policy Studies, First Floor Rosepark South, 6 Sturdee Avenue, corner of Baker Street, Rosebank, Johannesburg.  The event will start at 15h30 for 16h00 and end at 18h00, followed by drinks and snacks.   

Anyone interested in attending the launch should contact Candis Glover at candis@fcr.org.za or tel: 021 418 4173.
