The Directors-General of National Treasury and the Department of Small Business Development, Mr Dondo Mogajane and Mr Lindokuhle Mkhumane, are jointly convening a Metro Township Economic Development Symposium on the 18th and 19th August 2021. The aim of the Symposium is to galvanise the public, private sector, civil society actors and donors behind metro-driven evidence-based initiatives to revitalize township and well-located industrial spaces.

The Metro TED Symposium event on the 18th and 19th August is focused on forging the necessary public, private, civil society and donor partnerships around evidenced-based metro priorities and interventions for the development and revitalization of their townships and well-located industrial spaces. It is believed that co-ordinated and focused action will increase collective impact and in this way address some of the persistent challenges that have yet to be tackled.

The Directors-General of National Treasury and the Department of Small Business Development, Mr Dondo Mogajane and Mr Lindokuhle Mkhumane, are jointly convening a Metro Township Economic Development Symposium on the 18th and 19th August 2021. The aim of the Symposium is to galvanise the public, private sector, civil society actors and donors behind metro-driven evidence-based initiatives to revitalize township and well-located industrial spaces.

Whilst the Symposium event takes place in the wake of the recent civil unrest and the extensive devastation that has resulted, it was planned beforehand based on the recognition of the urgency to address the continued marginalization of, and underinvestment within, these spaces within our cities. With irreversible processes of urbanization underway within our country, townships and informal settlements are becoming the stepping-stones of many of the rural poor into our cities in the hope of a better life.

However, the experience of many of these hopefuls is one of a living environment that is spatially fragmented from the rest of the city, with infrastructure and service delivery backlogs or decay, high levels of poverty, tenure insecurity and unemployment, and many localized and competing micro entrepreneurs or survivalist enterprises. Townships remain highly vulnerable city spaces, illustrated in the uneven impact of the economic fall-out of the Covid-19 pandemic on the residents – especially women and youth.

The Symposium event is focused on the eight metropolitan municipalities given the fact that they bear the burden of urbanization within the country and are home to than 40% of the population. They also collectively contribute more than 50% of GDP and employment. National Treasury's Cities Support and Neighbourhood Development Partnership programmes have partnered with the metros in piloting bottom-up and spatially and developmentally integrated approaches to township economic development and the revitalization of well-located industrial spaces.

Metros have direct planning, regulatory, delivery and management responsibilities within our townships. However, they are not the sole development and economic actors within these spaces. National and provincial government and agencies also have regulatory, infrastructure planning and investment, asset creation and management, safety and security and business support responsibilities. Private sector investors, both within and external to these spaces, together with civil society and donors all drive and sustain the township and city economies.

The fact that our townships remain marginalized and under-developed and that the recent civil unrest was so wide-spread and devastating, is undeniable evidence that we are collectively failing to attain our national vision of liveable, safe, resource-efficient and economically inclusive cities. Indeed, until city townships and residents are fully integrated into the broader urban fabric and economy, this vision cannot be realized.

The Metro TED Symposium event on the 18th and 19th August is focused on forging the necessary public, private, civil society and donor partnerships around evidenced-based metro priorities and interventions for the development and revitalization of their townships and well-located industrial spaces. It is believed that co-ordinated and focused action will increase collective impact and in this way address some of the persistent challenges that have yet to be tackled.

​In 2016 National Treasury CSP and the World Bank/IFC hosted 3 Peer Learning Events in the Doing Business indicators where Cities have greatest responsibility – Dealing with Construction Permits (6 May), Getting Electricity (5 may) & Registering Property (24 August).

The aim of the Doing Business SA City Peer Learning Events is to encourage knowledge sharing between Cities about local best practice in business regulatory processes. The goal here is to shift the administrative mind-shift within Cities away (as perceived by investors) from “Inhibiter to Development” to “Enabler of Development in a way that makes it easier for firms to do business in city space.

It is this shift in mind-set that will induce Cities to improve their local business climates, as well as to provide opportunities for Cities to lobby national government for nationwide reforms that push the agenda for the country as a whole.

​In order to address the problems of inadequate capital expenditure and insufficient attention to asset management, a City Infrastructure Delivery and Management System (CIDMS) has been developed, building on the established Infrastructure Delivery Management System (IDMS) for provincial infrastructure. The CIDMS toolkit assists cities to optimise performance right across the urban infrastructure value chain by offering best practice processes, techniques and tools specifically designed to achieve city strategic objectives and desired outcomes related to the built environment. Consultation was held with key stakeholders on all 12 modules and the proposed implementation strategy.

​Our cities are critical engines of economic growth and development. However they have a number of challenges from repairing the damage of apartheid to addressing current challenges of supporting growth and attacking poverty. Cities therefore require dynamic and visionary leadership that is able to meet these challenges.
This Executive Leadership Course was designed to provide an opportunity for senior political and management teams in the metropolitan municipalities to reflect on the challenges facing them and to develop a workable programme to achieve rapid improvements in city performance. The course is led by top local and international experts in the fields of city reform, strategy, finance, planning, housing, transport and infrastructure.

​The course aims to highlight the potential of transport as a transformative tool in cities transforming the way cities think about both land use and citizen mobility. It seeks to enable metropolitan political and administrative leaders to get to grips with current challenges, learn techniques and tools, and be inspired to lead and implement change in urban mobility and land use management so as to connect, integrate and transform our cities into more inclusive, productive and sustainable cities.

​The ELP on Accelerating City Transformation for Inclusion, Growth and Sustainability continues to improve on the high standard of our previous programmes providing a week long immersive learning event that builds both on the leadership capabilities and technical knowledge in your cities. We are excited by the opportunity to bring the new leadership teams, across our cities, into a common understanding of the urban challenge facing them, and engage on some of the programmatic responses, in a manner that strengthens the political-administrative interface in individual cites and builds a sense of community across leadership of our eight (8) metros.

How do we build cities in which everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, age, or ability can live and thrive?

To make sure that tomorrow’s cities provide opportunities and better living conditions for all, it is essential to understand that the concept of inclusive cities involves a complex web of multiple spatial, social and economic factors:
  • Spatial inclusion: urban inclusion requires providing affordable necessities such as housing, water and sanitation. Lack of access to essential infrastructure and services is a daily struggle for many disadvantaged households;
  • Social inclusion: an inclusive city needs to guarantee equal rights and participation of all, including the most marginalized. Recently, the lack of opportunities for the urban poor, and greater demand for voice from the socially excluded have exacerbated incidents of social upheaval in cities;
  • Economic inclusion: creating jobs and giving urban residents the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of economic growth is a critical component of overall urban inclusion.

This interactive technical workshop was aimed at enhancing city decision-makers’ knowledge and technical capacity to implement a range of institutional and financing tools for catalytic urban land development projects. The training was designed to provide a conceptual and practical overview of
  1. the real estate market, capital market and land economy drivers behind this process
  2. how cities can promote private investment in the urban core and
  3. global best practices in development processes, partnering and financing to help cities understand and effectively intervene in these processes. Structured as a “working retreat,” the workshop combined lectures, expert panel discussions and facilitated strategy sessions among participants for Metros to refine and further develop their policy and financing tools for a representative project or redevelopment initiative in their city.
As such, this event sought to advance both individual’s knowledge and team-based project strategy in a series of dynamic interactive sessions facilitated by subject matter specialists.
