Title: Green Economy Programme


1
Green Economy Programme New Growth Path
  • Presentation to Portfolio Committee 16 February
    2011

2
Green economy as a government priority
  • Medium Term Strategic Framework 2009 - 2014
  • For longer-term growth,
  • implementation of Industrial Action Plan to
    support broad-based industrialization including
    more advanced manufacturing, encouraging
    cleaner, lower-energy technologies and green jobs
  • To pursue explore further the concept of Green
    Jobs including scaling up labour intensive
    natural resources management practices that
    contribute to decent work and livelihood
    opportunities.

3
Green economy as a government priority (2)
  • Framework to the international economic crisis,
    2009
  • development of incentives for investment in
    programmes geared at creating large number of
    'green jobs', i.e. employment in industries and
    facilities that are designed to mitigate impacts
    to the environment and natural systems and the
    protection thereof
  • Outcome 4
  • Decent employment through inclusive economic
    growth
  • Outcome 10
  • Environmental assets and natural resources that
    are well protected and continually enhanced
  • New Growth Path
  • Green Economy as one of the 6 key economic growth
    drivers

4
New Growth Path (NGP) Green Economy
  • Key Job Drivers in NGP
  • infrastructure
  • the agricultural value chain
  • the mining value chain
  • the green economy
  • manufacturing sectors, which are included in
    IPAP2, and
  • tourism and certain high-level services.

5
Green economy key focus areas and related
programmes
6
Overall enablers of implementation
  • Regulatory framework
  • Market-based instruments
  • Innovation, science and technology
  • Investment, finance opportunities and financing
    instruments including leveraging of funds
  • Greater localisation and manufacturing
  • Availability of skills
  • Institutional capabilities and capacity
  • Partnerships

7
Pre-requisites for resource mobilization
  • Generic programme pillars are assumed to match
    available resources
  • Projects within each programme should be
    scalable, replicable and capable of being
    prepackaged and aggregated as an investment bundle

8
High level Financial Resources Scan
  • Significant financial resources already in
    circulation in the SA economy investing in RD ,
    capacity building, pilots plus concessionary
    lines for bankable projects.
  • Energy related programmes accounts for over 50
    of international and 80 of local DFI funds
  • Green economic policy instruments are being
    explored by the National Treasury and their
    impact on the fiscus may be adjusted accordingly
  • Short term need to provide a national information
    portal on access to green resources

9
Programmes Projects
10
Results of 1st Expression of Interest
  • 1st EOI 154 project proposals and based on
    findings the waste, energy and agriculture have
    highest job intensity, significant opportunities
    for localisation and most environmentally
    beneficial in the short to medium term.
  • 2nd EOI 200 projects received focusing on
    green industry potential (manufacturing
    localisation), results pending from EDD and IDC.

Specific Projects moving forward
15
Energy
Project title Project Description
Low energy modular low cost housing The project will develop and large-scale implement a novel modular building system using High Performance Concrete for low energy modular low cost housing Continuation of already established joint venture partnership involving research, development and test production of low energy modular low cost housing. The project aims to create industrial growth in the low cost housing sector, which will contribute to increased quality and service delivery in the sector with a huge backlog of houses
Large scale PV development The PV development is expected to range from 10 MW 60Mw in remote areas Off Grid solutions for communities without electricity which will be a combination of PV solar and diesel at night (if necessary). Roof top PV for commercial, industrial, agricultural and domestic sectors Off grid PV for water purification and desalination plants. Service provider identified Eastern cape and Kwazulu Natal as initial project sites
16
Energy cont
eThekwini Municipal Street Light Pilot Project The Energy Office will be responsible for the development and packaging of carbon revenue (either from Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) from the CDM and Voluntary Emission Reductions (VERs)
Research, awareness creation/ marketing training and skills development specifically to the SWH programme The programme focuses on outreach and participation of grassroots communities with the following objectives in mind Job creation for youth, women and communities Skills development for youth men and women Enterprise development amongst communities Environmental conservation and management Energy Security Energy efficiency and Effective Demand-Side Management Income generation by communities and Overall community development and sustainability

And the recycling of all other recyclables brought to site . handling all the green waste from Tshwane Municipality for chipping and beneficiating into compost which will be used in the development of hydroponic farms in partnership with TIJI Network( the concept of the farms have been attached as one of the returnable document
22
AWARENESS, TRAINING SUPPORT
Project title Description
A South African human capacity development programme in support of environmentally sustainable practices A pilot version of this project is currently being developed with the Chris Hani District Municipality in the Eastern Cape. Considerable growth potential through proposed partnerships with District Municipalities. The Sustainability Commons can be multiplied through seed funding at Municipal Centres, schools or other public centres. Additional employment for trainers will be created through this process. Environmental skills facilitators trained though the ETDP SETA Learnership currently offered by WESSA adds another layer of employment opportunities through the Municipalities.
