3 Rationale for Gauteng Vision 2055: Why long-term regional planning?
“With widespread inequality and poverty, why expend effort on long-term planning? Why, in the context of scarce resources, should the focus be beyond addressing the needs faced by the people of the GCR now?” This requires a shared dream, careful planning, and focused implementation of this plan Countries and regions that have focused on long-term plans and their rigorous implementation have seen the benefits Gauteng Vision 2055 takes a balanced and integrated approach to devising a development vision over a long-term horizon

4 Rationale for Gauteng Vision 2055: Integrated government planning
Focus point for Gauteng Vision 2055

5 Rationale for Gauteng Vision 2055 : Why target 2055?
Plans recently established across the 3 spheres of government have set their sights on different end points – NDP targets 2030; the Tshwane Vision 2055; the City of Johannesburg’s GDS emphasizes 2040 While variations in planning timeframes complicate efforts to drive alignment, these timeframes have been identified for specific reasons

6 Why target 2055? 2055 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Freedom Charter. While it may not be possible to plan for every aspect of the path to 2055, the ideals defined in the Freedom Charter serve as a valuable compass by which to navigate. We acknowledge that only some aspects of the future can be mapped and targeted. Others may only reflect as aspirations, providing direction, but with less precision. Locating 2055 as the focal point sets our imagination free, in the context of priorities, certain specifics and the democratic changes defined in the Freedom Charter itself: The People Shall Govern! All National Groups Shall have Equal Rights! The People Shall Share in the Country's Wealth! The Land Shall be Shared Among Those Who Work It! All Shall be Equal Before the Law! All Shall Enjoy Equal Human Rights! There Shall be Work and Security! The Doors of Learning and Culture Shall be Opened! There Shall be Houses, Security and Comfort! There Shall be Peace and Friendship!

7 Why target 2055? The Current reality is known to change rapidly and present extreme challenges with limited control The global financial crisis Radical climate change across the continent, and the globe Significant unemployment and poverty Illness and disease Political instability Planning for 2055 provides a unique occasion for fundamental change. It is the opportunity of a lifetime: We could build a new educational system, and generations of skilled South Africans We could change the urban landscape: shifting the GCR’s borders; changing the housing form; removing social barriers We could move to renewable energy – and eradicate waste We could eliminate poverty, and reduce inequality

8 The journey to “Gauteng Vision 2055”
‘Gauteng 2055 Vision’, the long-term development plan for the Gauteng City-Region (GCR), represents a synthesis of many thinkers In 2005, a plan to build “an integrated, globally competitive city region” was announced, and called for: a “common vision and strategy”; ‘regional thinking’ by all delivery partners; enhanced cooperation and coordination; improved urban management and governance; and a focus on acting together in a global arena Learnings had been drawn from other city regions, which, like Gauteng, “have large urban populations, a clustering of cities and are dynamic economic engines driving not only national and regional growth but…the global economy” Since this announcement, much has been done to build a vision and strategy for the GCR…

9 The journey to “Gauteng Vision 2055”

10 Gauteng in the ‘70s From a time perspective, is not far away was only 43 years ago 1970’s 2013 So 2055 is not so far into the future and we need to prepare for it now.

11 The Story of the Gauteng City Region
Urban land use in Gauteng, Spatial change in Gauteng City Region

12 A Call to Dream On 24 May 2012, the Premier of Gauteng, Ms Nomvula Mokonyane, launched the Gauteng 2055 Discussion Document and called on all stakeholders to voice their vision for Gauteng in 2055. Robust engagements were held with women, youth, people with disabilities, academia, researchers, faith based organisations, business groupings, labour and ordinary citizens to mould a collective vision for the province. A campaign was rolled out in 2,745 schools across Gauteng to ensure that the future custodians of 2055 could be heard on their dreams for the future. Thought leaders in the area of city-region planning and long- term development were called upon to give comment on the discussion document and lively debates took place on radio and on social media platforms. Gauteng Vision 2055 is a “People’s Vision” - jointly owned by the province’s residents as a legacy that we leave for future generations.

13 Past, Present and Future: Population
Population projections made in the 1970 Urban population projections made in the 1970 up to 2000 for the Southern Transvaal, Witwatersrand Metropolitan and constituent metro zones with good accuracy. From 630 519 people in 1911 to 3 965 716 in 1970.

14 Past, Present and Future: Population
Population Growth in South Africa and Gauteng:

15 Past, Present and Future: The Economy
World Economic Growth World GDP BRICS GDP GDP growth of the world, from $ 10.5 billion (1960) to $69 billion (2010) and an estimated $ billion by 2055

16 Past, Present and Future: The Economy
FDI as percentage of GDP for BRICS countries: China: 3,7% of GDP in 2055 South Africa: 2,5% of GDP in 2055 According to the World Economic Outlook Report (IMF, 2013) emerging markets are set to receive increased capital flows from the developed world FDI was at an average level of 1.5% of South Africa’s GDP during and is estimated to reach 2.5% by 2055. China has the largest FDI/GDP ratio at 3.5% currently and will stay in the same range at 3.7% until 2055

17 Past, Present and Future: The Economy
GDP per capita at PPP (2005 prices): In 2055: Gauteng is expected to have much higher GDP per capita than the average GDP per capita of SA and the world Gauteng South Africa Currently: South Africa’s GDP per capita is very close to that of the world World

18 Past, Present and Future: Good Governance
The functional expansion of local government authority has arguably been the most significant institutional change in South African society since 1994 Intergovernmental collaboration is an imperative as government units in South Africa approach these challenges. South Africa’s 1996 Constitution invoked a system that requires all three spheres of government to play a role in most of the core functions pertaining to urban and regional development
