Secondary Cities in South Africa

Historically, the SACN has concentrated on the eight metropolitan municipalities and Msunduzi and, in 2012, began research into secondary, or intermediate cities. This research responds to the need to deepen the understanding of these cities in order to be able to have different planning, finance and institutional support for different settlement categories.
