48
  • KEY CHALLENGES
  • DURING
  • 2009/10 2010/11

49
CHALLENGES RELEVANT TO NHC
  • The following key challenges are worth noting
  • NHC could not effectively implement the Strategic
    Plan in the 2010/11 year under review because of
    the dysfunctional Council Committees
  • NHC still without a Council since October 2010.
  • Budget cut of R5 million by DAC in terms of
    annual allocations impacted on the full
    implementation of the 2010/13 approved strategy.
  • Increased demand for support of heritage
    initiatives cannot be matched with financial
    resources owing to limited budget.
  • Insufficient capacity to match the growth
    expectations on the LHR.
  • Lack of cohesion between the NHC and DAC Heritage
    Branch on programming
  • Insufficient Internal Research capacity.
  • Inadequate National research and policy
    management within the NHC.
  • Coexistence of Special Investigation Unit and
    AGSA negatively impacts on and/or constraints
    operational efficiency.
  • Inadequate capacity to increase knowledge
    production through research

50
CHALLENGES FACING THE SECTOR
  • Overlaps in Heritage Legislation create confusion
    in discharging mandates amongst DAC, NHC and
    SAHRA
  • Heritage still perceived in isolation, and not as
    an integral part of National Priorities
  • Heritage Management is a shared competency
    across all spheres of Government but yet not
    integrated into public programmes and policy
    frameworks
  • Recurring challenges of destruction of heritage
    resources due to lack of integrated
    infrastructure planning and development
  • Heritage Sector still under resourced and under
    funded
  • Lack of beneficiation model for the sector
  • Inadequate protection of Intellectual Property
    Rights of Heritage especially around Living Human
    Treasures and Indigenous Knowledge Systems

51
CHALLENGES FACING THE SECTOR continued
  • Deficiencies of Skills and Training, and lack
    of Research, Knowledge Production and Policy
    Development Capacity.
  • Lack of Public Access to Heritage Resources by
    local-grass-roots communities due to several
    factors e.g. heritage in private ownership,
    exorbitant entrance fees, language and etc.
  • Persistent Commoditisation of Heritage Resources,
    still not beneficial to the Heritage Sector or
    local communities but other sectors such as
    Tourism benefit from commercial exploitation of
    heritage resources.
  • Issues of Intellectual Property Laws not fully
    applied or enforceable to protect rights of grass
    root communities e.g. protection of rights of
    Living Human Treasures over Indigenous Knowledge.
