Abstract

The Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) will spend R15 to R20 billion on labour-intensive projects by 2009. The short-term goal is to create a million temporary jobs to alleviate poverty, especially in rural areas. The EPWP promotes longer-term employment through learnerships and other programmes targeting unskilled labourers. Though it was officially launched in September 2004, many municipalities have yet to implement the EPWP.
