PEERC took part in the recent Research Colloquium organised by the South African Local Government Association (SALGA). Hosted at the Cape Sun Hotel, Cape Town on the 28th and 29th of March 2018, the colloquium was held under the theme "Rethinking Local Government Transformation: Spatial Planning, Robust Governance and Sustainable Financing as Tools for Developmental Local Government". Among other objects of the conference was the need to inform all policy advice and decisions taken by government through evidence based and methodological sound research.

The Director of PEERC, Dr Johane Dikgang was a panellist in one of the most sought after panel discussions on "the impact of climate change and associated disasters on infrastructure and municipal assets. Among other recommendations, Dr Dikgang suggested the need for South Africa to take serious the threat of climate change and be able to come up with measures that enable the quantification of the risk of climate change.

Prior to the panel discussion, two researchers from PEERC presented different papers that were enormously received and discussed by attendees to the colloquium. The first of these two presentations was on "the assessment of the feasibility of implementing a district debt collection agency for South African municipality". This was presented by Ms Rebecca Klege, a researcher in Centre. The second presentation was on "positioning the Integrated Development Planning (IDP) at the centre of cooperative governance" and was presented by Mr Genius Murwirapachena, another researcher in the PEERC.

PEERC would like to express its sincere word of gratitude to SALGA for the opportunity to present some of its work and the privilege to network with practitioners and policy makers from various backgrounds.
