ABOUT THE COMPETITION

The South African Cities Network will convene the 4th South African Urban Development Conference from 4 – 6 March 2015. The conference, will inform the preparation of the 4th State of Cities Report by focusing on the question: “Are cities driving local and national development?”

The South African Cities Network (SACN) is partnering with the City of Tshwane to convene the Fourth Urban Conference in March 2015, and we wish to invite your participation.

The state of municipal water and sanitation infrastructure, particularly waste water treatment works, is of key concern in South Africa. Challenges being experienced include a lack of ongoing maintenance of existing assets, difficulties associated with revenue collection (with knock-on effects for investment and refurbishment) and a lack of engineering skills in many municipalities.
