"By 2030 South Africa should observe meaningful and measurable progress in reviving rural areas and in creating more functionally integrated, balanced and vibrant urban settlements. For this to happen the country must: clarify and relentlessly pursue a national vision for spatial development; sharpen the instruments for achieving National Development Plan" - Vision 2030
WHY YOU CANNOT MISS THIS EVENT
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.
Rapid growth and expansion of urban zones is increasing the economic activity but it covets proper development in terms of planning, designing, building and maintaining. City developers, town planners, construction managers have to face huge demand of innovations to be done. At present, over 400 million people in Africa live in urban areas, a number that will triple by 2050. This unprecedented rise of city population will provide new possibilities to grow and expand companies involved.
