|dc.description.abstract||This study focusses on community participation in the delivery of incremental housing. The
community participation approach and incremental housing approach share the same
goals and have the aim of community driven development. The study outlines the goals
and objectives of community participation and the principles of incremental housing.
Meeting these objectives and principles in the delivery of incremental housing can help
address the housing backlog in South Africa. Moreover, community participation and
incremental growth of housing, if implemented according to their principles and objectives
can ensure that beneficiaries needs are met. This is possible because the end users
execute and drive their own development. As a result they are in a position to articulate
their housing development priorities.
For the purposes of this study, two theories are used. The two theories contextualise
community participation and are relevant to the South African situation. There are
different notions of community participation that have different implications for housing
delivery. This study looks at the assumptions that the literature makes about the nature
of community participation.
The study reflects on international experiences with regard to the implementation of
community participation approach. International experiences indicate that some projects
have been a success, while others have not. This study's, recommendations forthe South
African context are drawn from the findings of this study and other international projects
which have been successful in implementing community participation.
A survey in this study has been conducted for the purpose of highlighting realities
regarding the implementation of community participation. The survey will enable the study
to inform the current housing policy about the realities of practising community participation
in the delivery of incremental housing.||en_US
