Description

Cities are the growth engine of the country’s economy.  As highlighted in the Integrated Urban Development Framework (IUDF), over 60% of South Africans live in cities – a number that is predicted to increase to over 70% by 2030.  For this reason, if cities are to be sustainable and inclusive, as envisaged by the IUDF, the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), they must also be at the forefront of employment creation, especially for those who are unskilled and uneducated.
