23 YEARS OF ELEVATING JOHANNESBURG’S LANDSCAPE

The Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA) proudly marked its 23rd anniversary as the infrastructure arm of the City of Johannesburg on Monday, 01 April 2024. Since its establishment in 2001, the JDA has been at the forefront of shaping the urban landscape and driving socio-economic growth through strategic development projects.

The JDA plays a role in the implementation of the Growth and Development Strategy of the City that responds to the Joburg 2040 ideals of resilience, liveability, and sustainability.

Over the past year, the JDA has achieved significant milestones, underscoring its commitment to enhancing the quality of life for residents and fostering inclusive growth. Here are some highlights from our 22nd year of operations:

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE JDA’s 22ND YEAR OF OPERATIONS

CITY OF JOHANNESBURG TAKES BOLD STEP IN ADDRESSING HOMELESSNESS

In a bold step towards addressing homelessness, the JDA has commenced construction on 200-bed displaced persons shelter in Devland. This crucial initiative will provide temporary accommodation and support to vulnerable individuals within Region G, embodying our commitment to social inclusion and support.

“As we celebrate 23 years of impactful development, the JDA reaffirms its dedication to delivering these infrastructure projects, through fostering resilience, and creating a vibrant, inclusive Johannesburg for all,” Mr Themba Mathibe said.

“There is a plan to improve our service delivery model and deliver quality infrastructure projects drawing back from the 23 years of experience in project delivery. We extend our gratitude to our partners, stakeholders, and the residents of Johannesburg for their unwavering support as we continue to shape the future of our city,” Mr Mathibe noted.
