CDE wants to change the way you think about South Africa’s cities and housing for the poor.
Together with Matthew Nell from Shisaka and Paul Jackson from TUHF, we are launching a new report, Building Better Cities: A new approach to housing and urban development.
Small entrepreneurs are rebuilding South Africa’s cities, developing new housing opportunities in already functional and connected neighbourhoods. In so doing they promote local economic development, affordable accommodation (mostly rental stock) and a less costly and more viable approach to housing delivery and urban densification. This is far better than the current housing policy, which mainly locates people far from economic opportunities and contributes to high rates of unemployment and poverty.
