​​Accelerating the Preparation and Implementation of Catalytic Urban Redevelopment Projects: Institutional and Financial Tools (7 - 9 March 2016)

Catalytic Urban Redevelopmenthttps://csp.treasury.gov.za/csp/Pages/project.aspx?itemID=4848
Summary
This interactive technical workshop was aimed at enhancing city decision-makers’ knowledge and technical capacity to implement a range of institutional and financing tools for catalytic urban land development projects. The training was designed to provide a conceptual and practical overview of:
  1. the real estate market, capital market and land economy drivers behind this process
  2. how cities can promote private investment in the urban core; and
  3. global best practices in development processes, partnering and financing to help cities understand and effectively intervene in these processes. Structured as a “working retreat,” the workshop combined lectures, expert panel discussions and facilitated strategy sessions among participants for Metros to refine and further develop their policy and financing tools for a representative project or redevelopment initiative in their city.
As such, this event sought to advance both individual’s knowledge and team-based project strategy in a series of dynamic interactive sessions facilitated by subject matter specialists.

In March 2020, the intergovernmental Relations Department of the National Treasury as the custodian of the CSP signed a partnership agreement with DAG and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. 
The partnership arrangement relates to the implementation of a three year programme on Land Value Capture (LVC), which is designed to enhance South African local governments(particularly the metros) capability to efficiently and effectively implement innovative Land Value Capture tools and strategies to advance spatial transformation. 
In the first three months of the scheduled six months’ inception phase for the programme, DAG organized and convened three Land Value Capture webinar sessions for the National Treasury Officials. The primary objective of the ongoing webinar sessions is to strengthen the knowledge and understanding on Land Value Capture principles & practice. The key outcomes of the webinar series include:
  • Improved knowledge and understanding of the key principles and/or aspects underpinning
    the Land Value Capture practice.
  • Better understanding of different LVC programmes successfully used elsewhere to advance
    spatial transformation and capital mobilisation.
  • Shared understanding on relevant international examples on LVC related interventions that
    can be potentially implemented in South African context.
  • Improved understanding on capacity development and technical assistance required to
    implement innovative LVC programmes appropriate to varying South African local
    government contexts.
  • A clear framework/ agenda for the National LVC programme webinar series on LVC concept
    and practice in South Africa.
The first webinar session was convened on the 27th of May 2020, with the overall goal enhancing local knowledge and understanding on different LVC related interventions designed to raise public infrastructure capital and advancing spatial transformation agenda. The second Webinar session was on innovative use of Special Rating Area (SRA) to finance public infrastructure projects in South Africa and this was convened on the 30th of June 2020. The third webinar convened on the 23rd of July 2020 was on Leveraging Development Rights to Advance Spatial Transformation. This document provides a brief summary on the key arguments advanced in these webinar sessions highlighting the discussed issues of convergence or divergence.

The National Land Value Capture Programme was launched in South Africa in March 2020 and is a tripartite partnership between the Development Action Group (DAG), the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and the National Treasury’s Cities Support Programme (CSP). The three-year programme aims to strengthen the capability of metropolitan governments to efficiently and effectively implement innovative Land Value Capture tools and strategies. Simultaneously, the programme seeks to build capacity in built environment practitioners and civic organisations to influence institutional, regulatory and other procedural changes required to implement these Land Value Capture tools and strategies. The programme is currently at the inception phase which comprises a series of planned activities aimed at defining project scope, key thematic areas and a detailed implementation plan for the next three years.  

The Land Value Capture National Partnership programme is based on the four key aspects namely:
  • Documenting evidence based case studies and research analysis to promote knowledge and understanding on Land Value Capture;
  • Provision of relevant specialised training and support to local government officials & built environment practitioners directly responsible for designing and implementing Land Value Capture related tools and mechanisms;
  • Initiating community of practice forums designed to share knowledge and or promote learning on experiences from municipalities across the country that are actively involved in processes of developing or implementing specific Land Value Capture mechanisms;
  • Initiating a 12 months’ internship programme designed to enhance the skills and expertise of young built environment graduates in the country.

Support the adoption and implementation of the revised municipal borrowing policy framework

​Outcome to which this project contributes: Revised city plans or programmes > Well governed city

Project description: This project supports cities to more effectively access and utilize available sources of infrastructure finance through reviewing the policy framework, strengthening NT capacity and ensuring improved reporting and monitoring. These activities focus on:
  1. The review and reform of the Municipal Borrowing Policy Framework: This review is being conducted in predefined policy areas, and reviewed by the Urban Finance Working Group (UFWG). Policy papers will be developed for discussion at the UFGW on quarterly basis, as well as subject to internal seminars in NT.
  2. The improvement and release of the Quarterly Municipal Borrowing Report.
  3. Three seminars and policy notes on aspects of infrastructure finance
This project will also assist cities to develop a long term financial strategy and policy for infrastructure financing. It will develop an integrated financing model, accounting for current and projected financing position (cash flow-based), investment needs (asset and demand based) and spatial location (BEPP priorities) in order to identify tangible policy choices facing a city. The model will be used as and input to a city municipal infrastructure finance policy statement, providing specific commitments (including bylaws where appropriate) and long term plans for the investment community, alongside a statement of proposed financial partnerships (instruments) that will be considered. This is being undertaken in 4 phases, as described in the project charter and sheet. This work is already underway, through pilots in NMB and eThekwini.

Summary

The City Economic Incentives Project will conduct a technical review and assessment of national, provincial and local government economic incentives in terms of:

● how they are and can be further leveraged by cities to support government's urban spatial transformation and inclusive economic development agenda

● how effective they are as metro spatial and economic transformation instruments, focusing on their alignment with, and contribution to, urban and local development objectives; and

● what reform of the instruments is required and whether there are other more effective incentive instruments that are required.

 

The underlying aim of the project is to develop recommendations that frame and model a City Economic Incentives Policy and to influence national policy towards a spatially-targeted approach to the application of national economic incentives. The project will consider the economic incentive programmes both from the perspective of metro representatives as well as of relevant national departments and entities. National and provincial economic incentives will be reviewed in terms of how they are designed to deliver spatial industrial and economic policy and investment that leverages the potential of cities. Cities will be reviewed in terms of how they utilise their own policy and programmatic levers to spatially influence private sector investment. The project will focus on what reforms are necessary within existing national incentives, and whether others are required, that would enable them to realise the social and economic potential of cities in the interest of driving national spatial, economic and broader development outcomes.

The first phase of this specific project has been completed through the release of eight metro spatialized economic data reports and an anonymized panel dataset. The second phase is being rolled out in partnership with the Human Sciences Research Council aimed at ensuring that this data is made available to the metros and the broader research community on an annual basis and in and accessible format and that metros are capacitated to utilize and interpret the data. This project is undertaken in collaboration with National Treasury's Economic Policy Unit and the Secure Data Centre.

This project has included the drafting of a city economic data strategy, which has been widely consulted on as a road map for building data co-ordination, collection and management capabilities nationally in support of improved public sector access.

Further work in this regard is being pursued in partnership with the South African Revenue Services, Companies and Intellectual Property Commission and StatsSA.

DB (Doing Business) provides a measure of the ‘ease of Doing Business’ in 190 countries through a set of objective indicators that focus on the impact of laws and regulations (and their enforcement) on the ease of Doing Business for domestic firms in 11 areas. The City of Johannesburg is South Africa’s proxy for the DB Survey. The Sub National Doing Business (SNDB) project is a comprehensive metro reform programme that supports metros to reducing the time, cost, number of procedures related to three DB indicators – dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, and registering property.

Doing Business South Africa 2015 was undertaken by the World Bank at the request of the South African government. The report measured the business regulation environment across 9 cities (Buffalo City, Cape Town, Ekurhuleni, eThekwini, Johannesburg, Mangaung, Msunduzi, Nelson Mandela Bay and Tshwane) and 4 maritime ports (Cape Town, Durban, Ngqura and Port Elizabeth) in 6 Doing Business indicators that show regional variation – starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, trading across borders, and enforcing contracts. The second sub-national Doing Business study in South Africa, Doing Business SA 2018 (published in September 2018) updated the data for these locations.

In order to improve the DB performance of the metros, a comprehensive metro reform programme has been implemented since 2015 that is focused on reducing the time, cost, number of procedures related to three DB indicators – dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, and registering property. The support has focused on:

1. City-to-city peer learning events;
2. Developing robust city-level Reform Action Plans (RAPs) for each of the 3 SNDB indicators, have these signed by the City Manager and submit to National Treasury, enforcing accountability;
3. Quarterly progress reporting on the implementation of the Reform Action Plans; and
4. Engagement with international and local technical experts to improve and update these Reform Action Plans.

The SNDB programme is being implemented in partnership with National Treasury, the World Bank and SECO.
