South African Cities Network Chairperson says there are important developments in South African Cities

Posted: 23 June 2016

The Chairperson of the South African Cities Network and current Mayor of the City of Johannesburg Councillor Parks Tau says five years down the line, the current State of South African Cities Report has seen several important developments.

Councillor Tau was speaking during the launch of the State of South African Cities report in Johannesburg on Wednesday night.

He said while South Africa is expressing a new vision for cities, reflected in the new Integrated Urban Development Framework (IUDF), the world is very much doing the same.

“I have said before that African cities are at the forefront of rapidly accelerating change – demographically, economically, environmentally and developmentally in general,” he said.

Councillor Tau said this was reaffirmed at the Africities Summit, which South Africa hosted in 2015. The SoCR 2016 contributes our unique national and local perspectives on the role of cities and mobilises all of us – the different stakeholders, institutions, spheres and sectors – to work towards a successful urban future.

He said the SoCR 2016 requires leaders of the cities to reflect upon the SoCR’s analyses and messages in relation to the goals and direction offered by the National Development Plan 2030, the IUDF, the Sustainable Development Goals, and Habitat III. Local government is unequivocally the right level for driving development.

“The fourth edition of the SoCR reminds us that this role has to be enabled by the range of urban actors, resourced properly, and guided by strong, accountable leadership,” he said.

Councillor Tau said this is the only way South African cities will succeed, while preventing negative urban manifestations such as unequal growth, crime, xenophobic violence, and the energy crisis,” he said.
