TOWNSHIP & URBAN DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE

2-3 APRIL 2014 CROWN PLAZA-JOHANNESBURG (THE ROSEBANK)

The population of African southern cone is growing so do the cities and urban settlements. The high urbanisation rates are because of rural to urban migration and high population growth rates. The proportion of people living in urban areas increased from 52% in 1990 to 62% in 2011. This will continue to increase to over 70% by the year 2030. This urban migration is a result of “push and pull” factors such as looking for new job, better infrastructure, modern housing and better education.
