Description of Project

LODLOG (Local Democracy and Local Governance) is a training programme addressing the poor service delivery in South African municipalities and aims at building capacity among municipal officers and local politicians to adapt the service delivery to the current needs as well as to roll out service delivery. Some of the main learning objectives were:

  • To be able to understand new, efficient and effective methods for service delivery in a municipal setting
  • To be able to understand, transfer and to practice better project cycle management

Further to traditional learning methods the participants designed and carried out projects based on their respective municipality’s Integrated Development Plan (IDPs).

In 2008 the overall management of the programme was transferred to SALGA (South African Local Government Association), whereby SKL International’s continued role was as contributor of international expertise.
