Although political freedom was attained in 1994, extreme poverty and underdevelopment remain major challenges facing South African society. A number of uncoordinated anti-poverty interventions are executed at various places and at different levels. This often leads to duplication and wasteful expenditure. It is this realization that compelled the lead Department in Poverty reduction to champion a process of re-looking at the Integrated Poverty Reduction Strategy five years on. Informed by the Poverty Indaba II held August 2008 the Department in partnership with Eden District Municipality will be hosting a Regional Poverty Indaba. The purpose of this Indaba is to assist the Eden DM to develop its Anti - Poverty Strategy whilst using this experience as pilot towards developing the Provincial Anti-Poverty Strategy.
