10:30 am – 12:00 pm Recalibration and Innovation of post-pandemic governance

South African cities face a myriad of challenges, which have been highlighted by the impact of COVID-19. A rethink of urban development and city management is needed in light of this shock, coming on top of persistently high levels of poverty, inequality and unemployment in South Africa, and particularly our cities. The pandemic represents an opportunity to recalibrate and innovate in city management and urban development for the greater good of society. This session will provide an opportunity to explore some of those possibilities.


Speakers: Andrew Boraine, Dr Soobs Moonsammy
