Since March 2020


13 June 2024 One page Learning Adventures

Join us on our first learning adventure as we unpack and identify the underlying causes of service delivery problems. In this publication we look at waste removal and the reasons why litter and garbage pile up in informal settlements. From overflowing bins to missed pickups, we ask how different parts of the system should work to improve service delivery.

11 March 2024 Asivikelane comments on government’s proposed compulsory water & sanitation norms
