Sakha Ikamva Lethu Namhlanje: Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Settlement Scenarios 2020

David Schmidt

The scenarios described in this document are an attempt by a multi-disciplinary team of NMBM officials together with the Isandla Institute to better understand the key uncertainties that are driving the future of human settlement management in NMB – to think through the "what ifs" so we can better anticipate and prepare for the uncertain unpredictable unfolding of tomorrow. The purpose of the exercise was to empower NMBM and its stakeholders to identify the most important opportunities and threats likely to effect the management of low-income settlements in an era of HIV/AIDs in order to facilitate better strategy-making and planning. It is hoped that the scenarios could form part of the broader process of strategic planning including the long-term 2030 planning, the IDP process and the strategy for housing and human settlement.
