dc.description.abstractEnglish: This article critically evaluates the definition and operational application of various settlement typologies across selected government departments for the purposes of the planning, implementation and monitoring of development programmes. Both quantitative and qualitative research methods are applied and informant and group interviews are conducted with 21 different government departments or entities. Nine different typologies are identified and compared on the basis of the requirements highlighted during the group interviews and international best practice. Discussions with the various interest groups highlight the need for a functional typology that consists of a number of categories or classes that can be combined as needed and not be restricted to a simple urban-rural dichotomy. A more dynamic and accessible linkage between the spatial units of analysis of the various typologies is also required. It is found that the South African City Network/ Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) settlement typology meets most of the criteria set by the literature as well as the groups interviewed. In view of the widespread use of the Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) data and typologies, it is recommended that the South African City Network/CSIR typologies should dovetail as much as possible with the 2011-census data and classification system.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Hierdie artikel evalueer die definisie en toepassings van verskeie nedersettingstipologieë wat deur verskillende regeringsdepartemente en ander openbare instellings gebruik word vir die doeleindes van beplanning, implementering, en monitering van ontwikkelingsprogramme. Beide kwantitatiewe en kwalitatiewe navorsingsmetodes word gebruik en groepsonderhoude word onderneem met 21 verskillende regeringsdepartemente en entiteite. Nege verskillende klassifikasiesisteme word vergelyk, gebaseer op die vereistes soos geïdentifiseer tydens die groepsonderhoude en die oorsig van internasionale beste praktyk. Die behoefte aan ’n funksionele tipologie wat voorsiening maak vir ’n aantal klasse wat saamgevoeg kan word soos nodig en nie net beperk is tot ’n landelik-stedelike onderskeid nie word beklemtoon gedurende die groepsonderhoude. Die resultate van die navorsing toon ook ’n duidelike behoefte aan ’n meer dinamiese en toeganklike skakel tussen die ruimtelike eenhede van analise in die verskillende klassifikasiesisteme. Die navorsing bevind dat die tipologie soos ontwikkel deur die Suid-Afrikaanse Stadnetwerk en die Wetenskaplike en Nywerheids Navorsingsraad (WNNR) aan meeste van die kriteria wat uit die literatuur oorsig en die groepsonderhoude geϊdentifiseer is, voldoen. In lig van die wye gebruik van die Statistiek Suid-Afrika-data en -klassifikasie is dit noodsaaklik dat die WNNR-klassifikasie en die 2011-Sensusdata en tipologie optimaal geintegreer word.af
