Service Delivery Improvements of the Asivikelane Initiative

September 2020

Attribution is a dubious science and the causes of change in government are complex. We do, however, think that there are important reasons why we can claim to have contributed in some way to the service delivery improvements listed in this report.


Impact Case Studies 1: Ekurhuleni

01 March 2019

Six hundred thousand informal settlement residents will receive better quality sanitation services as a result of community-led monitoring and engagement in Ekurhuleni. In 2018, the International Budget Partnership South Africa (IBPSouth Africa) and the Social Audit Network (SAN), started partnering with Planact and 13 informal settlement communities in Ekurhuleni to conduct a social audit on the provision and maintenance of portable toilets. A social audit is a community-led process of engaging government about poor services by monitoring service delivery on the basis of government commitments contained in budgets and other official documents.
