Anglo American Municipal Capacity Development Programme




Brief Description

The Anglo American Municipal Capacity Development Programme (AA MCDP) is a collaboration between the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Anglo American, and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research as implementing partner.

The objective of the AA MCDP is to strengthen the functionality and impact of municipal teams responsible for basic service delivery and sustainable development in mining towns. The programme interventions are developed and implemented in collaboration with participating municipal teams, to respond to the unique challenges and opportunities impacting development in mining municipalities. Challenges include the increased service demands from fast growing settlements, rising socio-economic vulnerability of households, and a complex regulatory and intergovernmental environment.

The programme is currently providing support to nine municipalities namely: Gamagara and Tsantsabane local municipalities in the Northern Cape Province; Blouberg, Musina, Fetakgomo-Tubatse and Mogalakwena local municipalities in Limpopo Province; Moses Kotane local municipality in North-West Province; as well as Emalahleni and Steve Tshwete Local Municipalities in Mpumalanga province.

The Mining Towns Collection sponsored by Anglo American and hosted in the uKESA library is there to support these and other municipalities facing similar challenges.
