Urbanisation and urban management in KwaZulu Natal1

Urbanisation and urban management in KwaZulu Natal1 Urbanisation and population movements in KwaZulu Natal from 1980 to 1991 and their implications for urban management are examined. People moved out of Natal rural areas and most small towns and into urban and rural KwaZulu areas. The most rapid growth has been in the Durban Functional Region, especially its KwaZulu districts. There has been movement into KwaZulu rural areas, both around urban centres and in outlying areas. A number of the larger towns have experienced population in‐migration even where employment and growth in output have been static or have declined. These trends raise questions about the explanatory value of urban transition models and suggest rather more complex patterns of movement. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Development Southern Africa Taylor & Francis
