What is the RSEP Programme?
The Regional Socio-Economic Projects (RSEP) Programme is an intergovernmental and citizen-centric Programme run in the Western Cape and is aimed at neighbourhood development and spatial justice. It is currently being implemented in twelve municipalities in the Western Cape.
Phase 1 of the RSEP Programme included three municipalities while Phase 2 included an additional seven municipalities, with a recent addition of two more municipalities. The Programme comprises a large variety of projects, driven by different role players, including Local Municipalities, Provincial Departments and the private sector. A core component of the Programme is to promote learning about spatial neighbourhood upliftment and to mainstream lessons learnt, best practice and opportunities for replication in other municipalities and towns.
