The Urban Reimbursable Advisory Service (RAS) worth $5 million, is now under full implementation, supporting the government's efforts to turn around the apartheid spatial legacy of South African cities and improve spatial efficiencies. There is a multi-global practice work program for metropolitan-level support, with a World Bank (WB) team acting as principal technical advisor to National Treasury (NT) on a range of critical policy areas. Work is being scaled up with financial support from NT ($5m RAS and likely second phase request) and SECO (additional $9 million BETF signed in September 2015), in addition to a potential engagement with the Ministry for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, (CoGTA) focusing on secondary and fast-growing cities.
