This strategic framework, approved by cabinet on 17 September 2003, sets out a comprehensive approach with respect to the provision of water services in South Africa, ranging from small community water supply and sanitation schemes in remote rural areas to large regional schemes supplying water and wastewater services to people and industries in our largest urban areas. It outlines the changes of approach needed to achieve our policy goals as a result of the progress we have made in establishing democratic local government and developments in the sector since 1994. It has been developed through a consultative process. Meetings and workshops were held around the country with a wide range of stakeholders. Feedback received at these meetings and all written comments received from stakeholders and the public have been taken into consideration. [authors abstract]
