Abstract

This project investigates how local economic activity in Cape Town's informal settlements can grow and expand with an emphasis on community-based redevelopment. Through an analysis of the current economic conditions of the informal settlement Monwabisi Park, the project team proposes a comprehensive plan for stimulating job creation and skills development through an overall community redevelopment effort. The project team explains the logistics of managing the redevelopment process within the community and provides a strategy for effective financial management.
