WHAT IS THE KAROO REGIONAL SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK?

The Karoo Region is a unique and awe-inspiring ecological, physical, social, cultural, and economic phenomenon stretching over four provinces in the South African landscape. The Karoo Regional Spatial Development Framework (RSDF) aims to apply regional-scale thinking, conceptualisation and planning to the region in order to: (1) harness the full development potential of the region in a sustainable and transformative way, and (2) address the shared, large-scale regional challenges, such as climate change, poverty, inequality, and unequal access to, and participation in the economy.

The Karoo RSDF will focus on regional attributes, characteristics, dynamics, flows and processes:

Regional development drivers and threats

Regional spatial economics, interactions, and flows

Regional settlement histories and futures

Regional institutional alignment and cooperation
