This issue 2 of the City of Johannesburg Human Settlements Research Publication features a research study undertaken by the Human Settlements employee Ms Moitoi Alice Mvelase who examines the contentious subject matter of the misalignment of policy in implementing the Upgrading of Informal Settlements Programme in the City. The second section presents work undertaken by the Centre of Affordable Housing Finance (CAHF) on the Johannesburg housing market which begins to paint a positive picture of the impact of RDP/BNG on the overall performance of the residential property market.
