Fast-Tracking The Water and Energy Transition


When we know better, we do better. Local economic development in South Africa are moving toward the concept of place-based policies, which is primarily about the creation of policies starting with the assumption that people know better and that successful policies require engaged societies which participate in the development of their own priorities and policies.


The energy and water transition is a pathway toward transformation of the energy and water sector to zero-carbon by the second half of this century. At its center is the need to reduce energy-related CO2 emissions to limit climate change.


The National Cleaner Production of South Africa (NCPC-SA) was launched during the 2002 Johannesburg World Summit as a co-operation initiative between South Africa and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) with financial assistance from the South African Department of Trade and Industry (the DTI) and the Governments of Austria and Switzerland.

The National Cleaner Production Centre of South Africa (NCPC-SA) is responsible for and focuses on the private sector including individual enterprises, sectoral organisations and selected special economic zones.

Their mandate is to:

• grow awareness in South Africa;

• provide assessments and advice to enterprises in all industry sectors;

• facilitate value added outcomes through investments in Cleaner Technologies;

• grow capacity among the industrial workforce, management, government, service providers and students;

• contribute to national priorities for example energy saving, water quality and waste minimisation through efficiency; and

• contribute to the creation of green jobs through clean production capacity building and recycling.
