Participatory Urban Governance

The Participatory Urban Governance Programme seeks to mobilise role players from the sector, including affected citizen's, to support the struggle of "Re-imagining the City" and developing effective "Participatory Urban Forums" (on national, provincial, and metro levels). In so doing it seeks to build inclusive urban governance processes and platforms in partnership with key players from government, civil society and private sector. Ultimately it seeks to provide solutions that will redress social, economic and spatial inequalities in order for citizens to have sustainable livelihoods and an improved quality of life. Underpinning this journey towards transformation are city-wide demonstration projects; efficient and acknowledged urban forums, in-depth urbanisation research and policy analysis, review and dissemination. Currently some of the specific geographic areas that DAG is focussing on are: Khayelitsha; Mitchell's Plain; Philippi; Century City; Mowbray Golf Course.
