|Chapter title||Culture and Rural-Urban Sustainable Development: Is South Africa Addressing this New Global Agenda?|
|Authors||Verdini, G. and Sirayi, M.|
This chapter discusses whether South Africa is currently addressing a new emerging international urban agenda, particularly fostered by UNESCO, which promotes a cultural approach to rural and urban development. This agenda is rooted in cultural and indigenous planning, which is seen as a condition to achieve sustainability. It is essential to engage meaningfully with local communities and their diversities, and ultimately to enable a post-colonial transition of a deeply divided country like South Africa.
