The Good Plan to #FIXSA

 
 

Politics as usual has failed our beautiful country. Now is a GOOD time to fix South Africa. Our GOOD leaders used their experience and expertise, together with NGOs, business and industry experts, and our GOOD community representatives from across South Africa to unite and work on a plan to fix our country’s critical challenges. The GOOD Plan to #FIXSA is based on proven solutions that will solve South Africa’s key problems. For example, The GOOD Plan means:

  • Applying the methods used by Colombian cities to address the root causes of crime that saw serious crime reducing by more than 80%;

  • Using the hundreds of thousands of parcels of land owned by government and SOE’s to address housing and land shortages by using public land for public good;

  • Giving title to residents of informal settlements so that, like many South America cities, we can eradicate informal settlements by allowing residents to invest in and upgrade their own homes while government provides services like electricity; roads, water and sewage.

  • Growing our economy by creating the conditions conducive for investment, like GOOD leader Patricia de Lille did for Cape Town, where in 2018, 90% of all jobs in the Western Cape were created.

Separating our society based on skin colour resulted in unequal access to jobs, housing, land, tenure and transport in towns, cities and rural areas. GOOD commits to undoing the legacy of Apartheid spatial planning to create a more just society.

The role of government is to create conditions that ensure economic growth, investment and new jobs. GOOD will restore stability and confidence in government and ensure corrupt politicians are prosecuted and sent to prison, not parliament. GOOD will build the infrastructure to ensure South Africa competes more effectively for investment.

GOOD commits to ensuring equitable treatment of all people in South Africa. Gender bias, racial discrimination and unfair privilege must end so that South Africa can achieve real democracy and a fully united and equitable society. Social justice also means equitable access to quality education, and ensure fair and equal pay for equal work.

Climate change is real and is impacting our economy, food security and the environment. Poor and vulnerable citizens are most impacted by climate change. GOOD will tackle climate change, uphold animal and environmental rights, help cities to implement waste reduction plans and ensure we move to cheaper, renewable energy sources.
