The Integrated Development Plans consist of the following phases : Analysis, Strategies, Projects, Integration and Approval.

The IDP is an instrumental tool that help local municipality focus on the most important needs of local communities taking into account the resources available at local level. IDP strengthens democracy through the active participation of all the important stakeholders decisions are made in a democratic and transparent manner.
