Searchable Database of Resources on Urban Land Issues in South Africa

In order to provide an organised, comprehensive evidence base for the ensuing debate on urban land issues, CAHF undertook a literature survey on relevant topics associated with the urban land reform agenda in South Africa. Nearly 450 resources were collected: research, articles, guidelines, presentations, policies and legislation. This dashboard allows you to search the bibliography by theme, sub-category and author—and provides hyperlinks to view the documents online where available.

The bibliography is organised into 8 main categories:

  • Use value and best-use value
  • Urban and rural interdependence
  • People-centred approaches
  • Equitable access to property markets
  • Spatial transformation
  • Residential and economic informality
  • Climate resilience and biodiversity conservation
  • Policy and legislation

The literature survey and bibliography is thus intended to provide a foundation for further debate and exploration on the urban land reform agenda in South Africa, by laying out the library of relevant resources, policy and legislation that form the backdrop and evidence base for critical policy decisions. We hope it proves a useful resource. Please feel free to contact us to suggest additional resources which can be added, or to obtain copies of documents which are not available online: alison@housingfinanceafrica.org
