Resource Guide on Inclusive Community Engagement

The Department of Rural and Community Development recently launched a Resource Guide on Inclusive Community Engagement in Planning and Decision-Making.

It is co-written with civil society organisations and designed to be user-friendly, with quick reference checklists and pointers. It condenses a lot in terms of policy and statutory obligations and good practices, building on SDG commitments to the principle of ‘Leave No One Behind’, and Public Sector Duty approaches, while also providing signposting to further resources that compliment and inform this work. It is our intention to review the guide later this year, building on lessons learned from ongoing related pilot projects.
