Background and objectives
Igoli 2002, initiated in March 1999, is a city-wide, participatory planning process, which aims to address critical financial and institutional problems facing the metropolitan council and to lay a more stable foundation for the effective and efficient delivery of services to all Johannesburg's residents. The plan will provide for the establishment of new institutional arrangements, including utilities, agencies and corporatized units to better manage the Council's core service responsibilities, a refinancing programme to decisively address a severe financial crisis and a series of special projects and programmes, which will enable the metropolitan council to take a longer term and more developmental perspective on key metropolitan challenges of slum upgrading, housing, local economic growth and investment. The programmes to be supported and the sub-components to be targeted for CASP funding are a water and sanitation utility programme, modelling technical and financial systems and tariff structures to ensure an acceptable and sustainable level of water and sanitation services to low-income communities, metropolitan housing delivery strategy and programme, defining a new housing delivery approach and designing the housing finance systems and institutional arrangements necessary to support this and the greater Alexandra and N3 development project, first phase sub-regional plan to provide greater access to land and infrastructure to the people of Alexandra.
Support the project team to prepare an initial strategic business plan for the utility, modelling of ideal service levels, tariff structures, external funding requirements, subsidy and lifeline measures and possible water loss reduction measures. Contribute to the development of an appropriate, realistic and affordable housing delivery strategy and design an implementation programme and plan for the city of Johannesburg, consistent with the national and provincial policies, as well as the city's strategic metropolitan integrated development framework.
