This study aims at determining the major factors and causes that hinder the smooth
implementation of the Decentralized Built Together Programme in the City of
Windhoek, examining how and whether the needs and concerns of low-income groups
of society are addressed and met effectively.
Findings of the study reveal that the beneficiaries, while appreciating the existence of
the DBTP, are experiencing major frustrations with regard to the programme.
Frustrations are largely the result of a lack of information (including the need for
marketing strategies regarding the programme), poor attendance of meetings and a
general lack of interest shown by implementing officers. In the absence of annual
programme reports, ill-informed assessments ofthe quality of the DBTP were made.
Other negative factors include insufficient funds, lack of monitoring and evaluation units
as well as poor financial control systems. The paper further argues that poor
communication among councilors, implementing officers and beneficiaries have
contributed to delays in the implementation of the programme.
Finally, the study offers recommendations, hoping that they might assist the
implementing officers in contributing to the successful development of the DBTP
