The South African economic, reconstruction and recovery plan

Last updated: 19 July 2021

The South African economic reconstruction and recovery plan is a policy document outlining the country's response to the covid-19 crisis.

The plan is organised in three phases: (i) a direct response to the health crisis to save lives; (ii) reforms and other interventions to restore the country's economic well-being while monitoring the health risk; and (iii) building a resilient, inclusive and sustainable economy.


Among the many priorities mentioned by the government, energy security and energy industries are major components of this recovery plan: specific interventions for this sector are mentioned such as completing the regulation of bioenergy, connection of additional 128 MW of IPP capacity, or nuclear and gas to power programmes.


Line departments and Ministries will be responsible for the implementation of programmes relevant to their departments.
