Human and institutional capacity

As urbanisation continues to grow, and cities increase in size and importance, more and more functions of the city are devolved to local government.  As a result of this, human and institutional capacity needs to be supported and strengthened. 


To assist in this regard, the South African Cities Network has developed a number of publications relating to human and institutional capacity.

Amongst other things, these publications address:


The effectiveness of the Local Government Sector Education Training Authority’s mandatory grant process


Developing a toolkit for South African municipalities


Considering spatial economies in spatial development planning
