Tenure Security Facility Southern Africa Project


Urban LandMark's Tenure Security Facility Southern Africa project, supported by Cities Alliance and with co-funding from UKaid by the Department for International Development (DFID) in 2012 and 2013 provided technical assistance and advisory services on incrementally securing tenure in slum upgrading in the region.

The purpose of the project was to contribute to improved access to land for poorer people, which in turn contributes to improved livelihoods, active citizenship and asset creation.

The Tenure Security Facility extended and expanded on work Urban LandMark had undertaken between 2006 and 2013. This work has made a significant impact in changing the profile of the need for incremental tenure in the slum upgrading process and thinking around how this should occur.
