Inclusive Growth

  • This project recognises the critical role that the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform plays in promoting rural development and equitable access to land in order to address poverty and underdevelopment in rural areas. Rural poverty and underdevelopment is strongly associated with poor access to land, either in the form of landlessness or because of insecure land rights. Economic analysis has long recognised the importance of secure property rights for growth, and therefore for the poverty reduction which growth can bring.

  • High failure rate of small business in South Africa. It is estimated that 50-60% of newly established company fail in their first 18 months of their operations. Though the policy environment is pro-small businesses; and government have put in place programme to support small business, many SMMEs still struggle to be suppliers of the big companies that are dominating the value chain in the country.
