Abstract
This report was compiled subsequent to the release of Government’s draft Ten Year Review document and the 2003 Medium Term Budget Policy Statement. Those documents reflect an awareness of the fragility of the past decade’s advances and the need to adopt a “developmental paradigm” to consolidate those gains. This must include a commitment to further expansion of social security, including effective delivery of social grants to all who meet the constitutional criteria for social assistance.
