Abstract

[The future of South African cities is linked to how these cities address the historical legacies of segregation and inequality. South African cities are the driving force of national economic development. However, without addressing the pressing issues presented in this book, many of these cities face a bleak future. Some of the future challenges facing cities include climate change; political uncertainty; economic disinvestment and growing populations. Yet despite these challenges, cities are in a good position to address the need for a more sustainable future. Cities in South Africa are moving beyond neoliberal planning and can develop a future that builds a better life for urban residence.]
