On the 6th of May 2013, a workshop was held at Mbombela Stadium with several municipalities and the Inkomati Catchment Management Agency (ICMA). The aim of the workshop was to introduce the Local Government Capacity Programme (LGCP) to the participating municipalities, identify possible areas of co-operation between Dutch and South African municipalities and discuss the alignment of the roles and responsibilities and policies of the municipalities and the Inkomati CMA. The workshop also looked at the links between LED, water and sanitation. The workshop was opened by Councillor Zayid Boroka of Mbombela Municipality and facilitated by Michelle Essink (LGCP Resident Programme Manager). Presentations were also made by Keimpe Sinnema (Waterschapen Groot Salland) and Renate Postma (Zwolle Municipality).
