Workshop proceedings: incrementally securing tenure - 29 January 2009


Urban LandMark is developing an approach for the recognition of informal settlements and tenure security in South Africa, with potential regional applicability. 'Special zones' and 'local land offices', among other mechanisms, will be explored and their applicability tested. This inception workshop provided participants with background and context on the project, and gave delegates the opportunity to provide feedback on the development of the approach.
