How the poor access, hold and trade land: findings revisited


A 2007 project commissioned by Urban Landmark investigated how the poor access, hold and trade land in different types of settlements in three metropolitan areas in South Africa (Cape Town, Ekurheleni and eThekwini).

As a follow-up to this project, additional qualitative and quantitative analyses of the original project data were carried out to increase understanding of the issues, particularly in respect of the way in which the poor transact, trade and develop land and the costs thereof.
