Join the CST webinar for a discussion on
 Rethinking Public Governance for Systems ChangeFor nearly 10 years, the Western Cape Economic Development Partnership (EDP) has been working with local and provincial government to build its capacity to meaningfully collaborate across spheres of government, across departments of government, and between government and the private sector and civil society. Specifically, the EDP has been interested in understanding how governance innovation could become a lever for systems change.
This webinar will focus on lessons learnt from EDP practice, drawing on the example of the Western Cape Government Whole of Society Approach Project, to unpack the opportunities for, and challenges of, implementing innovative governance practices.

Presenter: Rushka Ely (development practitioner at Western Cape Economic Development Partnership (EDP))
