Population and Public Management in South African Cities

South Africa, as developing country is still in an urbanization stage with less than 65 per cent being urbanized. This puts significant strain on the existing management and future planning of towns and cities, who according to the country’s constitution, is responsible for all housing and land use matters. Although local- and metropolitan municipalities are responsible for the aforementioned, they are also legally obliged to integrate principles of public participation, sustainability and urban integration in spatial planning matters. Regarding these, we will be focusing on the population and public management in South African cities in this issue of IGLUS Quarterly. As a collaborative work of IGLUS and the Urban and Regional Planning Department of North-West University, four articles from the experts of their field will be covered in this issue.
