South Africa


CC was asked by the South African government to assist that country with post-apartheid economic development activities related to the closure of military bases and the downsizing of defense industries in S.A.   CC worked with South African universities, NGO’s and the South Africa’s Departments of Defence and Public Works to develop a national strategy for the conversion of the first three military bases slated for closure and reparations.   Kaiser also reviewed proposals on behalf of the World Bank to provide technical assistance to local governments in S.A., and later hosted a delegation of South African Generals, DoD officials and Public Works personnel as part of a World Bank sponsored tour to communities in the USA that had been affected by military base closure and defense industry downsizing in the post-Cold War era.
