Urban development processes reflect the dialectical relationship between society and space, as understood from the perspective of human geography. Specifically, space is socially produced but space and place act back on society and influence the structuring of society in a relational manner (Massey 2004; Peet, 1998). These dialectical relationships need to be explored in the processes of knowledge production and practices of urban planning and management so as to address the challenges facing cities in the South and to ensure more sustainable outcomes (Swilling, 2006).
