The case of the Business Trust Mabedi Programme
Through the Business Trust Maruleng and Bushbuckridge Economic Development Initiative (Mabedi) which was undertaken with the then Department of Provincial and Local Government, communities were brought into partnership with private investors. Skills and capital were attracted, and jobs were created. This paper will examine two successful Community Private Partnerships (CPPS) in tourism and agriculture, in adjacent regions of the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces. These two provinces account for over 37% of land claims in South Africa.
