Municipal Capability & Partnership Programme
“Collaborating for service delivery and development impact”
The MCPP enables partners to collaborate for improved service delivery in eight local municipalities.

The Municipal Capability & Partnership Programme (MCPP) is a collaboration between Anglo American and the Department of Cooperative Governance (DCoG) to strengthen municipal governance capability. The Programme includes commitment from Anglo American Platinum, De Beers and Kumba Iron Ore (and their participating mines), as well as the active involvement and co-ownership of participating municipalities. The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is the value-add implementing partner and is enabled through the collaboration of a range of industry and government collaborators.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Strengthened collaboration for service delivery and development
The main objectives of the Municipal Capability & Partnership Programme are to:‍

  • Support municipal partners to mitigate critical risks to service delivery, related to mine closure;
  • Collaborate with municipal partners to improve service delivery (address challenges exacerbated by unique dynamics in mining towns with a specific focus on access to water, sustainability of infrastructure and service delivery in transitioning mining regions) and;
  • Strengthen the collaboration between partners to tackle current and future development challenges peculiar to mining towns and regions.

The MCPP is a collaboration between Anglo American and the Department of Cooperative Governance (DCoG) and includes commitment from Anglo American Platinum, Kumba Iron Ore, De Beers (and their participating sites), as well as the active involvement of participating municipalities.
