Gauteng 2055 Trend Paper: Highlighting some of the real and potential impacts of migration in Gauteng

A short report by Loren B. Landau and Veronique Gindrey of the Forced Migration Studies Programme at the University of the Witwatersrand summarises a variety of trends and concerns related to population trends in Gauteng. These include fertility, mortality, and most forms of international and domestic movement into, through, and out of the Province. Based on four primary conclusions, the report recommends that the Province should start planning for a more diverse and needs-intensive population without delay.
