Some thoughts about sustainability of ASALGP Put forward by Centre for Law And Reconstruction in Southern Africa CLARISA as principal project partner
What do we have? Partnership relationships Modules, models, guides, other material Information sharing partnership model Tested approach to capacity building Newsletter and web page An integrated municipal management career advancement program (8.2b) An ASALGP system of 2 pilot provinces
Australia SA L G Partnership Project Team MUNICIPALITIES Officials leaders - practitioners Provincial Departments for Local Government Department of Provincial and Local Government LGW SETASALGA Capacity & learning Partnerships managed Priorities Align with policy Facilitate delivery
Core characteristics Its is a Private Public Partnership It is consultative and supportive It is non-profit It adds value in a practical manner Etc.
Why sustainability? Money spent by Australia created value, outputs and products, it should not go to waste ASALGP provides a sound base on which a new approach to capacity building and information sharing can be developed By continuing many other municipalities in other provinces could also benefit Three years only serve to start a process
Whose responsibility ? The project partners – those who were driving it in Australia and South Africa and who are accountable to the beneficiary departments and municipalities - need to put it on the right road that will take it into a future life…
Option discussed at the PCC’s The Trust model Establishing an ASALGP Trust Fund Appoint a board of trustees from stakeholders Use donor and other income to proceed the work in the 2 pilot provinces And role it out into the other provinces …
What are other options? 1 A new holding entity – not for profit - continue the aims & objectives - proceed as a going concern – same process, partners, approach and method of working – the entity must raise the money to fund continued operations and activities…
…or… 2 Link it onto a new parent organization which will take over the program and proceed with the two pilot provinces…
…or… 3 Hand over to the 2 pilot provinces to take it further in the way they deem fit – e.g. with provincial SALGA’s. in a structure suitable to each province
…or… 4 Finding a home for the different components web page newsletter partnership consultancy and advice career development training package ongoing activities in the provinces in different organisations who take them further
Some considerations… Administrative capacity Available funding to take over staff & assets Budgets for operations and staffing Time, resources, co-ordination Commitment in view of own core business Ability to adopt same approach Commitment to partnership goals
Sustainability does not Require a replication of ASALGP – municipalities are – much progress has been made the past few years Sustainability has to do with making sure that the lessons learnt and the value adding concepts are taken to new hights
How do we move on this to come to a decision before April 2005? A working committee? Who will fund the committee? ??????
