The webinar is the second in a series of 10 seminar hosted by SaferSpaces that will explore the key elements of South Africa’s White Paper on Safety and Security, and how such elements can be more effectively implemented. The first six webinars will therefore focus on the core pillars of the Draft Integrated Crime and Violence Prevention Strategy (ICVPS) as the strategy document outlining the implementation of the WPSS. Participants' discussions will be consolidated to input into the ongoing public consultation on this strategy. More information on the ICVPS can be found here

In total, there will be 10 webinars between January and April 2021. Please see for more details.
