3 CHALLENGES FACED BY MUNICIPALITIES : Lack of engagement with the private sector especially chambers of commerce and industry in the areas in which municipalities/development agencies operate Political interference and influence in the functioning and operation of municipalities/development agencies and tensions within the parent municipality as to where development priorities lie Lack of skilled staff and resource constraints within municipalities/agencies. Financial uncertainty and medium/long term viability leads to staff uncertainty about their future which leads to lack of continuity.

4 CATALYTIC PROJECTS: catalytic projects often take time to develop, plan and implement and, even once launched and implemented, these projects take further time to mature. It is only in the implementation and maturity phases of a catalytic project that the full impact of development initiatives will be visible in terms of job creation and economic spin-off.
