dc.description.abstract The aim of this literature study is to determine if the Reconstruction and Development Program (RDP), as South Africa s structural adjustment program, is in line with the reconstruction and development proposals of the international driven World Bank, given the economic situation around the 1994-period. Furthermore development in South Africa is not only influenced by domestic dynamics but also by international tendencies because of South Africas open economy. The World Bank and International Monetary Fund, as international development vehicles, has made certain proposals on structural adjustments to stimulate economic growth and reconstruction to be in line with the international development aims. Domestically, South Africas situation is influenced by inherent structural and systemic weaknesses which effects continuous development, sustainable economic growth and welfare creation. This means that South Africa has to make certain structural adjustments to attain a balance between reconstruction and development on the one hand and economic growth and a favourable balance of payment on the other hand. In order to adhere to the aim of the study, chapter two will give an overview on South Africa's economic situation (domestically and internationally) around the 1994-period. In chapters three and four, the RDP and World Bank proposals are respectively discussed to state their vision, principles, aims, viewpoints and strategies aimed at reconstruction, development, economic growth and the creation of welfare. Discussions in chapter five show the RDP is in line with international focal points (World Bank proposals) but that their approach to the problem differs. The vision of the RDP is to improve welfare and the quality of life of all South Africans with the emphasis on social upliftment through redistribution thus creating economic growth and development. The vision of the World Bank is to relief poverty through environmentally accepted and sustainable ways with the focus on social upliftment through economic growth. Chapters six and seven concludes that the successful implementation and utilization of the RDP needs dedicated planning, co-ordination and implementation of set goals as well as a co-ordinated combination of expertise and proposals of both the RDP and World Bank. This would be in light of the specific requirements and situation South Africa operates within, resulting in economic growth, reconstruction, development and creating welfare for all South Africans. en
