Spatial Temporal Evidence for Planning South Africa
Spatial Temporal Evidence for Planning South Africa (stepSA)
outh employment is considered to be one of South Africa’s most urgent national undertakings. Amongst other activities, the government is currently using spatially-targeted housing delivery under Cabinet’s Outcome 8 to try to increase the chance for the rural-born unemployed to live at the metro core-zone labour market where jobs are most concentrated. This policy brief from the Spatial and Temporal Evidence for Planning in South Africa takes a qualitative look at the youth labour market through the situation at Diepsloot, based on StepSA qualitative field study in 2009-2012, together with later spin-off work done for the World Bank in 2012/13.
