The Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) hosted the District Development Model as a Platform for Innovation for Inclusivity on 13 May 2022, virtually, as part of the Innovation for Inclusive Development (IID) seminar series. The objectives of the webinar were to showcase the DSI’s approach in positioning the model as a platform to drive innovation to solve development challenges and improve service delivery; and to engage and solicit views from participants on this approach. The outcome of these discussions will enable the Department to ascertain focus areas of the Decadal Plan to be implemented in the districts. The IID seminar series are learning interventions that use “knowledge, evidence and learnings” to inform, influence and demonstrate how innovative technology solutions may be used to achieve inclusive development, improve the capacity of the State to deliver and improve access to basic services, and thereby advance local economic development.
