Infrastructure Mandate for Change 1994-1999

This book, Infrastructure Mandate for Change 1994-1999, as does its accompanying volume, Empowerment through Service Delivery, appraises infrastructure policy since 1994.This volume focuses on the transformation of infrastructure policy in South Africa since 1994, particularly those relating to water, health, land, electricity, housing and transport. A wide range of sectors is examined within the dynamic fluid policy context. An enormous amount of energy, time, money and effort has been exerted to transform infrastructure policies, which were designed to disempower the majority of people, into infrastructure policies designed to empower the majority through establishing equity in infrastructure and service delivery. The central message emerging from this insightful critique is that transformation in infrastructure policies has been uneven, and had a differential impact on different groups of beneficiaries.
