South African Government

Let's grow South Africa together

Where do I get a copy of the Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP)?

The Reconstruction and Development Programme was the primary socio-economic programme following the elections in 1994. The broader aim of this socio-economic policy was to establish a  more equal society through reconstruction and development as well as strengthening democracy for all South Africans.

  • The original RDP Strategy is an African National Congress (ANC) document and available on the ANC website.
  • The RDP White Paper [PDF] is a government policy document.
