Zutari is proud to be part of the Future Cities South Africa (FCSA) initiative – a unique coalition of organisations which contributes to inclusive and sustainable economic growth, poverty reduction and improvement of gender, social and economic inequalities in South Africa’s cities. The FCSA also supports the cities of Cape Town, Johannesburg and eThekwini with urgent urban challenges, such as those posed by Covid-19.
Zutari oversees one such ambitious project in Soweto – an urban planning project encompassing finance, spatial economics, engineering, climate change and resiliency planning to bolster economic development. The project goes beyond technical engineering and includes a highly participatory approach which brings together stakeholders from the local community and local government. Zutari is supporting these parties to move beyond their traditionally strained relationship; connecting differently to create innovative solutions based on emerging best practice for township economies.
