What the JDA does: an overview
The Johannesburg Development Agency is an agency of the City of Johannesburg that stimulates and supports area-based economic development initiatives throughout the metropolitan area.
WHAT WE DO
The JDA aims to transform the City of Johannesburg through growing competitive business environments, improving public spaces and promoting access to jobs.
OUR VISION, MISSION AND OBJECTIVES
The work of the JDA is crucial to the success of the City of Johannesburg’s Growth and Development Strategy, Joburg GDS 2040, in creating a city that is resilient, liveable, sustainable urban environment, and is underpinned by infrastructure supportive of a low carbon economy.
The City of Johannesburg is a developmental metro that takes into account the socio-economic circumstance of all who live in it.
Transport-orientated development will see Joburg overturn apartheid-era town planning, by bringing services, schools and work opportunities closer to home for those living on the City’s outskirts.
