Voices of the Poor: community perspectives on accessing urban land


The aim of this 2007 initiative by Urban Landmark was to analyse the perspectives and experiences of civil society organisations about access to urban land by the poor. The study was based on a series of workshops undertaken during May and June 2007. Workshops were held in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Pietermaritzburg and Johannesburg and hosted by urban development NGOs active in the region. In all, 105 participants from more than 30 different civil society organisations participated.
