Integrated Urban Development Framework: Draft for Discussion

The projected urbanisation and population growth show that by 2030 the majority (70%) of South Africans will be living in cities and towns, townships and informal settlements. South Africa's top priority is job creation, and cities and towns can help to create jobs. Urban centres offer great opportunities for addressing the challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment and, ultimately, the country's ability to achieve the required social and economic transformation.

In this regard, Cabinet has approved the Draft Integrated Urban Development Framework (IUDF) for public engagement. The Draft IUDF is a coherent government strategy that seeks to foster a shared understanding across government and society about how best to manage urbanisation and achieve the goals of economic development, job creation and improved living conditions for our people.

The Draft IUDF takes forward the arguments and thoughts outlined in the IUDF Discussion Document, which was launched to the public on 25 October 2013. It outlines the strategic goals, policy levers and strategic priorities that should inform a concrete implementation plan for attaining the urban futures vision outlined in the National Development Plan.


You are therefore invited to participate in the dialogue and make your inputs, as we finalise this strategy for creating more dynamic and integrated urban spaces that support our national objectives of poverty reduction and inclusive socioeconomic development.
