Steering Committee

One of the recommendations of the Reconciliation Strategy Study was that a Strategy Steering Committee (SSC) should be formed with a clearly defined mandate and scope of work.

The objectives of the SSC are:

  • to ensure and monitor implementation of the recommendations of the Western Cape Reconciliation Strategy,

  • to update the Strategy to ensure that it remains relevant, and

  • to ensure that the Strategy, its recommendations and progress with the implementation are appropriately communicated to all stakeholders.

The SSC was constituted with membership from the main users and institutions in the area. See the table below for the full list of member institutions as well as the ToR for the Strategy Steering Committee
