Violence Protection Through Urban Upgrading
Planning for informal settlement upgrading often neglects important social and economic networks established by community members. Asset-based community development is a community-driven approach to planning that builds upon the strengths and capacities of local residents in order to improve living conditions. By compiling an inventory of community assets in Monwabisi Park, we hope to inform the City of Cape Town's Informal Settlement Upgrading Programme (ISUP) for Monwabisi Park and other informal settlements in the area.
