What is the RSEP/VPUU Programme?
The Regional Socio-Economic Programme and Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading Programme (RSEP/VPUU Programme) is an intergovernmental programme run in the Western Cape. The Programme will comprise of a variety of projects driven by different role players, including municipalities, Provincial Departments, the VPUU Not for Profit Company (VPUU NPC) and communities.
The Programme is currently being implemented in six municipalities in the Western Cape. The next step is to broaden the impact of the Programme beyond these six municipalities in order to ensure fair and equitable distribution of government resources. As such, a core component of the Programme is to promote learning and to mainstream lessons learnt, best practice and opportunities for replication in other municipalities and towns.
