Abstract:There can be no doubt that South Africa's Government of National Unity is committed to a people-centred development approach. The key to understanding the intentions of the government and to making those intentions succeed are most clearly expressed in the statement that development is about active involvement and growing empowerment of the people. The author first outlines viewpoints of government spokespersons on the concepts of empowerment, involvement and participation. Then he mentions specific institutional requirements which ought to be met by governmental organizations and their personnel to fulfil the empowerment-supportive role successfully. By way of conclusion, he gives an overview of the hurdles to be overcome in the process of empowerment. Bibliogr.
