The Habitat II Global Plan of Action and the Urban Challenge

Isandla Institute
PDF, 2001

Central to the Habitat Agenda is the participation of civil society organisations in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of the Global Plan of Action. This paper forms part of a contribution to the South Africa submission by Isandla Institute.  The objectives are twofold: firstly, to provide a critical and constructive contribution to the South Africa submission, and secondly, to use the submission and discussions around it as a vehicle to invigorate the urban debate in general, and South Africa in particular.  To this end, it will pose the question 'Are our urban policies and programmes making any impact in achieving more integrated, vibrant and sustainable cities?'
