The research and policy proposals from the process of reviewing the performance of existing government programmes targeting the second economy and developing an expanded strategy were presented to a 'Work in Progress' workshop in May 2008 and to a conference entitled 'Second Economy Strategy: Addressing Inequality and Economic Marginalisation', held from 29 September - 1 October 2008. A framework and a set of 'headline strategies' resulting from these processes are presented here. These have been presented inter alia to the AsgiSA High Level Task Team, PCAS, the Economic and Social Clusters and FOSAD, before the framework was approved at the Cabinet Lekgotla in January 2009.
