The SACN has been part of the team driving the Integrated Urban Development Framework (IUDF), which was successfully launched in 2014. SACN is acting as the secretariat to the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) and partners and is extensively involved in the development, editing and production of the various documents.
The IUDF seeks to foster a shared understanding across government and society about how best to manage urbanisation and achieve the goals of economic development, job creation and improved living conditions for our people.

Importantly, this vision for South Africa’s urban areas recognises that the country has different types of cities and towns, which have different roles and requirements. As such, the vision has to be interpreted and pursued in differentiated and locally relevant ways. The nine levers of the IUDF are explained below in the nine short videos.
