Towards resilient cities: Reflections on the 2011 State of South African Cities report

Date :
Wednesday, September 21, 2011
Location :
Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban

The seminar will consider the progress made by democratic metropolitan government drawing on the 2011 State of SA Cities Report, of which Ivan Turok was the principal author. The concept of resilience lends coherence to the analysis and is examined from five perspectives: economic, spatial, environmental, governance and financial. Compared to a decade ago, socio-economic conditions are better in many respects, and SA cities are contributing to wider national devĀ­elopment.
