GCRO 2011/2012 Annual Report
This report covers the third full operating year of the Gauteng CityRegion Observatory (GCRO) and the beginning of our second three-year cycle of support from the Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG). (We were operational for only the final quarter of 2008/2009, our first year, which formed part of the first three-year cycle which ended in March 2011.) GCRO was publicly launched on 11 September 2008.
A partnership between the GPG, local government in Gauteng, the University of Johannesburg (UJ) and the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg (Wits), GCRO is an innovative response to the socio-economic, cultural, governance, political, growth and other challenges related to the cluster of cities that makes up the Gauteng City-Region (GCR), the economic engine of South and southern Africa.
