Training for Township Renewal Initiative: Colloquium on Retail-led Township Development

August 2010

A Colloquium on Retail-led Township Development was held at the National Treasury on 11 August 2010. At the Colloquium, the Urban LandMark-commissioned Demacon research on the impact of township retail was used as the basis around which the necessary conceptual tools and evidence could be identified and debated. The Urban LandMark research findings were complemented by additional South African Cities Network case study research and expert inputs. About 60 participants representing local municipalities, private developers, banks and academics attended the Colloquium.
