Conventional approaches to local development have not been successful in eradicating poverty, unemployment, and inequality. These challenges continue to face policy makers and development practitioners in South Africa. More specifically, it has become clear that at the global level, there are structural differences between the global North and the global South. What makes sense in the North may have different results in the South. Typically, tailoring development strategies in the global South offer alternative agenda for development planners in the South.

After nearly two decades since the ending of apartheid colonialism, poverty, unemployment, inequality, and environmental degradation remain persistent problems. In seeking to improve the quality of life for all its inhabitants, South Africa must also reduce poverty, create employment, and redress widening inequalities. Both at national and provincial levels, policy development aims to enhance inclusive development.

Thank you chairperson, Honourable Deputy Minister, our Vice Chancellor and Principal, all protocols observed, ladies and gentlemen.

My name is Lindile Ndabeni. I work here at this Institution as one of the staff members. As Rasigan has correctly pointed out, indeed our work seek out new answers to a number of problems that we experience as a locality, as a province, as country, and a region, as a continent, and as a world. By and large we do this through research and dissemination of its results.
