Over the past two years, the Transaction Support Centre has experienced first-hand the barriers that impede formal residential property transactions, and the very significant repercussions these have for property-owning households, the development of trajectories of lower-income neighbourhoods, and by extension the transformation of South African cities. This is now documented in a detailed report.
In this webinar, CAHF’s Kecia Rust and 71point4‘s Illana Melzer share what the TSC and its team learned over the past two years and discuss a way forward for the TSC, including thoughts on key policy recommendations required to drive systemic change. The presentation also shares the TSC’s plans for the year ahead.
CAHF and 71point4 are grateful for the assistance and support of all of our partners, who are acknowledged in the presentation, including TUHF21 and uMaStandi who have funded our operations for the past year, the SA National Treasury who provided important support at the beginning, and Cities Alliance who provided funding for this review and report. We are also very grateful to Oppenheimer Generations Foundation, who are providing support for our future plans.
