Despite economic growth, inequality is still a challenge in South Africa. We link Canadian municipal experts like you with local South African governments so they can work together to help vulnerable people, particularly women and youth.

South Africa's Eastern Cape Province has some of the country's highest poverty rates. Local governments in this region are working with Canadian municipal experts to focus on:

  • Reducing poverty
  • Helping local governments deliver services, drive green economic growth and prepare for climate change
  • Empowering women, youth and vulnerable groups, and ensuring their inclusion in their communities' political, economic and social life
