The Constitution requires the different spheres of government and organs of state to exercise their powers and functions in a mutually supportive and cooperative manner. This has been given legal expression in terms of the Co- operative Governance Act. In relation to waste management, co-operative governance refers to harnessing the network of government institutions at national, provincial and local level to achieve the goals and objectives set out in this strategy.

This section of the NWMS will identify existing and proposed intergovernmental structures, as well as specific areas of co-operative governance required for particular provisions of the Waste Act.
