The State of Cape Town 2014 report is a biennial report – the fifth in the series – produced by the City of Cape Town. The purpose of the report is to provide a snapshot of Cape Town with up-to date information and analyses of the most pertinent urban development issues facing the city, its residents and businesses.
This report is also a celebration of South Africa’s 20 years of democracy and – data permitting – includes an overview of the development trends in Cape Town over the last 20 years. The report is organised around five themes – social (on the people in Cape Town) economy, natural wealth, urban growth and form, and urban governance. The main report is accompanied by infographics of the five themes, as well as chapter summaries to allow readers a quick overview of the key developments and trends discussed in each of the chapters.
The State of Cape Town 2014 report includes inputs from nine subject experts aligned to the five themes, as well as Vox Cape Town which is an overview of interviews conducted with a small sample of beneficiaries of urban sustainability projects, on their lives over the last 20 years.
Any feedback, comments or suggestions on the report are welcomed and can be e-mailed to [email protected]
