generic terms functioning
  • Secretariat support

  • Meeting frequency
    • At least once a quarter

  • Chairing
    • External delegate
  • Champion
    • DWA Senior manager responsible for the function
  • Composition
    • Must demonstrate sector inclusivity; be relevant to the issue under consideration; and have specialists or functional officials working on the issue/s under discussion
masibambane coordinating committee
  • Oversees water sector programme performance and ensures coordinated implementation
  • Focuses on action-oriented but strategic discussions
  • Extracts key strategic issues for sector dialogue and direction on WSLG level
  • Composed of programme drivers from all key sector partners and institutions
  • Meets quarterly and develops reports on performance
wslg working groups
WSLG Working Groups
  • Group set up in the June 2009 WSLG to work on consolidated sector response to the Local Government Policy Review- championed by Mr. H Muller-DWA
  • Group proposed in the November 2009 WSLG to consolidate sector position on planning for the National Strategic Planning Framework
  • These groups are not set up as task teams, their work is timebound, they report directly to WSLG EXCO on progress
establishment challenges
  • Full integration is still a huge challenge; most STTs opting to establish smaller sub-committees to focus on issues previously assigned at STT level. This requires coordination
  • Some STTs and sub-committees require dedicated content development support in the form of specialists/experts, however funding for this is not always available
  • Specific short-term mandate from WSLG may be needed to galvanise collective action by STTs.
  • EXCO is working with champions to develop high-level strategic goals and outputs to be pursued by each STT. This will also guide monitoring and reporting
  • Review frequency of STT meetings: is there a need for task teams to meet quarterly OR as and when needed as long as there is synergy with WSLG reporting
