The Eastern Cape Rural Development Agency (ECRDA) is a schedule 3 (c) entity in terms of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA). ECRDA has dedicated focus on formulating, promoting and ensuring the implementation of a comprehensive integrated rural development strategy for the Eastern Cape province.

The vision of the ECRDA is a leading and vibrant organisation that improves livelihoods and develops sustainable rural communities in the Eastern Cape province. The ECRDA’s mission is to accelerate implementation of identified high-impact priority rural development programmes and unlock dormant potential of resources through partnerships, with the communities as the centre of operation.

The Entity’s strategic objectives are to promote, support and facilitate rural development in the province by: mobilising financial resources and providing financial and supportive services to persons domiciled, ordinarily resident or carrying on business; promoting and encouraging private sector investment in the province and the participation of the private sector in contributing to economic growth; promoting, assisting and encouraging the development of the province's human resources and financial infrastructure, in association with other institutions having similar or related objectives; acting as the government's agent for performing any development-related tasks and responsibilities that the government considers may be more efficiently or effectively performed by a corporate entity; driving and coordinating integrated programmes of rural development, land reform and agrarian transformation; project managing rural development interventions; promoting applied research and innovative technologies for rural development; planning, monitoring and evaluating rural development; and facilitating the participation of the private sector and community organisations in rural development programmes.
