REPORT: Alternative Futures for Pretoria (Tshwane) West

We conducted a workshop for a non-profit organization working in the Pretoria (Tshwane) West area on possible alternative futures for the region.

Our research indicate that three scenarios are likely to play out in over the next two decades, these are themed, “Emergency Room”, “Waiting Room”, and “Boardroom” respectively.

Emergency Room” is the “worst-case scenario”, where trends in poor governance, poor economic prospects and social degradation lead to crime and despair.
Waiting Room” reflects government-led transformation, where infrastructure and educational upfiftment give residents hope for the future.
Boardroom” reflects transformation led by the private sector, where industrial and commercial development lead to employment, upward mobility, and greater affluence.

The purpose of the report is to inform the strategic thinking and strategic planning processes of the client organization.
