The African Centre for Cities, the City of Cape Town and the French Development Agency signed a partnership agreement [fr]
The City of Cape Town has put together a Strategy and Investment Plan for the Voortrekker Road Corridor (VCR). This document argues that the objective of the VRC programme is to use public sector resources to leverage private sector investment for the growth and renewal of the VRC. This research project will seek to conduct research on the potential of this corridor to achieve the hitherto elusive socio-spatial integration.
The research will be useful for better understanding the challenges of operationalizing strategic goals such as socio-economic integration, high-density development, mixed-use and mixed-incomes development, within middle-income and emergent countries. This research will be supported by exchanges with French researchers.
