Project outline

Land Expropriation without Compensation is a hot topic in South Africa, and National Treasury commissioned Centre for Housing Finance in Africa to conduct a literature review along with position papers on the impact of this legal position on cities. We conducted the literature review on behalf of CAHF and surveyed more than 400 resources to present the state of knowledge in South Africa. A comprehensive resource library with accompanying referencing system was produced for CAHF and City Support Programme of National Treasury and the Integrated Urban Development Framework working group (consisting of a number of directors of national government departments).
