SA Township Opportunity Atlas

Addressing the spatial inequalities in the country, reflected in the townships, is essential to improving the lives of people.

Why was the Township Opportunity Atlas developed?

  • Many national and local government initiatives exist to stimulate township economies, but there is limited understanding of the township realities
  • For the development of new markets for the private sector in the townships requires comprehensive information. 
  • Large amounts of data are available but are not available from a single source and in an easy to use geospatial format.
  • Real “in-township” and “out-of-township” opportunities can only be taken advantage of if clearly identified through the use of information.
