The Capable Cities Index Working (Paper Series) - Two Measuring the Capacity of Cities

The Capable Cities Index (CCI) provides a methodology for measuring and ranking the capability of South Africa’s municipalities on the basis of their consistency in maintaining high levels of capacity, performance and compliance, with a focus on the 27 largest cities. Local government generally, and the major cities in particular, are crucial actors in the country’s development and in building a capable state in line with the National Development Plan (NDP).
