Tuesday 18 June

The Executive Director of SECTION27, Mark Heywood, gave a presentation at the SWOP Breakfast meeting on “The missing link – Using the Constitution to advance development.  Do we need a development plan at all?”. He argued that the Constitution ought to be the starting premise for any development plan, something that is lacking in the NDP. For him the NDP is an inadequate plan because it is primarily abstract in nature and does not adequately meet urgent social needs, among other things. The full presentation is attached. Mark Heywood SWOP presentation
