CONGRESS OF THE PEOPLE (a very detailed thread)

COPE recognises that agriculture in our country, in its totality, is under siege. Good farmers will get encouragement and bad farmers will get support to improve their skills and management.
COPE believes that company owned farms listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange will allow people to buy shares and enjoy co-ownership without sacrificing the economic viability of farms. Nearly ten thousand farmers left commercial farming in the past ten years...
COPE will seek to reverse this calamitous situation. COPE believes that it is imperative that the government knows exactly how many successful farmers are still active.

COPE recognises the critical importance of education and training in building a prosperous country, creating jobs, and achieving social stability. We therefore undertake to provide –

a national education teacher support centre;
in-service teacher training;
modern management courses for school principals;
innovative and proven methods to make mathematics and science learning popular and successful;
educators with computers and software to undertake management tasks;
an electronic whiteboard in every class;
intelligent lecterns to enable educators to access a recessed flat-screen monitor;
a specially developed student computer to every student; and
text books and stationery before the beginning of the school year.

COPE will use the World Health Organisation model to ensure that –exclusion and social disparities in health are reduced;

- health services are organised around people’s needs and expectations;
- health services are integrated;
- continuous dialogue refines implementation; and
effective stakeholder participation is guaranteed.

We will therefore implement swift measures to combat preventable and communicable diseases and to promote healthy lifestyles by increasing health literacy through ...
all the means available to government. In respect of clinics we will have regular supplies of medicines and an adequate number of health professionals.
In respect of hospitals COPE will provide access to emergency services, reduce long waiting times in hospitals through the use of information and communication technology systems, improve management, separate patients into

repeat treatment queues,
frail and aged,

COPE will use the Housing Act of 1997 to create a sustainable national housing development process.

In our view, improving access to housing finance and developing extensive partnerships with the financial sector is essential. Policy and funding reforms must occur.
COPE will provide upgrading plans for informal settlements as well as approved plans with quantity surveyors’ bills of quantities for those who can build to do so with speed in given areas. COPE will reshape the spatial economy so that urban settlements can become functional.
To ensure that a functioning and equitable residential market will come into effect COPE will effect integration, institutional reforms and speedy changes to land management and infrastructure investment. COPE will continue to develop social housing ...
as well as medium density rental housing within a viable human settlement.

COPE strongly supports greenfield developments as well as the social and economic restructuring of South African cities and towns. We believe that it is high time for the building of communities to go ...
hand in glove with the building of houses and amenities. COPE, therefore, believes that the concept of co-housing must gain traction.

COPE supports the themes covered by the UN in a Habitat for a Better Urban Future.
Safety and Security

The institutional foundations of the democratic transition in South Africa is premised on a movement from an authoritarian approach to policing to one that has fundamental respect for the human rights of others.
For too long the apartheid police institutions played an active role in governing South Africa. Their role was to keep the policies and practices of the Apartheid government intact.
In this sense, policing was political and the institution was thoroughly politicised by the old National Party government. The promise of democracy heralded a new approach to policing in South Africa.
The South Africa Police Service was created in 1995 after an amalgamation of eleven police agencies made up from the old homeland Bantustans, the South African Police Force and the liberation movement security sections.
