Supporting unlikely networks towards inclusive development
As DAG, when it comes to informal settlement upgrading the concept of neighbourhood planning is at the heart of the approach. DAG believes that the viability of all informal settlement upgrading projects is largely determined by the extent to which the residents actively participate in their upgrading process. This is premised on our belief in utilizing the opportunity of using the infrastructural investment to leverage development objectives. Over the years, DAG worked with some of the Cape Town-based informal settlements providing socio-technical assistance and strengthening the capacity of the local civic organisations and leaders to lead their upgrading.
