I am delighted to have been asked to be the South African ambassador for the RSA. My sphere of expertise is urban and regional economics/planning with a focus on urbanisation and the development of cities. As an ambassador, I seek to have an overview of urban and regional research in (South) Africa and to promote RSA activities wherever possible. I would be very pleased to hear from any existing or potential members of the RSA in Southern Africa.
