Umdoni LED Strategy Impact Assessment Report

Description

The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development Strategic and Performance Plan 2006-2010 identifies the role of the Local Economic Development Programme as to stimulate and support sustainable economic development at local level. Key to this role is facilitating and supporting the development of strategies for sustainable economic development projects that create a better enabling environment for LED and empower local stakeholders (municipalities, business associations, civil society and communities) to plan and manage their projects. To this end DED has funded a
number of economic development projects across the province. However, the major concern is the extent to which these projects have achieved purposes for which they were funded for, and the impact they had in stimulating local economic development. Against this background, the M&E unit selected certain projects that have been funded by the Department of Economic Development for evaluation purposes. In this report, findings of evaluation of Umdoni LED Plan project conducted by the M&E unit are presented. The report covers the project background, objectives of the evaluation, research methodology, key research questions, analysis and recommendations.
