Peri-urban spatial challenges in small rural towns

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from Sweden and South Africa, as well as local partners to deliberate on peri-urban spatial challenges in small rural towns in conceptual and physical terms.

The objectives of the workshop are to:
  1. Enable the research team to share their research idea with other researchers.
  2.  To engender multidisciplinary debates, and knowledge exchange from a ‘bigger’ community of scholars and stakeholders.
  3. Strengthen debates on proposed adaptive strategies to curb spatial challenges from the peri-urban zones of small rural towns
  4. Expand the existing networks at individual and institutional levels.

Keywords: adaptive strategies, peri-urban, spatial challenges, small rural towns.
Venue: University of Venda, Department of Urban and Regional Planning
