WEBINAR | Inclusive and effective e-participation in South African municipalities

Digital technologies for inclusive and effective public participation
27 June 2024
14:00 to 16:30

The HSRC would like to invite you to a webinar on inclusive and effective e-participation on 27 June 2024. 

The webinar will explore policies and laws towards ensuring more effective and inclusive processes, and how these may support a more responsive and citizen-centric governance in South African municipalities.

The webinar is part of the Viability and Validations of Innovations for Service Delivery Programme (VVISDP) established by the Department of Science and Innovation, in partnership with the South African Local Government Association and the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, with funding from the European Union Sector Budget Support Programme and National Treasury.

VVISDP comprises six separate, innovation-enabling projects. Project 5, the e-Participation and Policy Modelling Platform for South Africa (ePPMOSA), aims to pilot e-participation and policy modelling technologies and methods in selected municipalities between 2022 and 2025.
