Shisaka DMS, WC Department of Human Settlements (July – September 2015)

To support the development of a Human Settlement Framework (HSF) the Western Cape Department of Human Settlements appointed Shisaka to undertake research focusing of key areas of restructuring.

MCA was asked to identify innovative methods to improve performance in human settlement delivery through a review of existing innovative projects in the Western Cape. This involved researching over 40 housing projects to identify 21 suitable projects considered innovative due to one of five focus areas:  Integration; Financial Sustainability; Environmental Sustainability; Density; Private participation; and Delivery as a cross cutting issue. This formed the basis for identifying the factors contributing to success.
