Urban LandMark

"Urban LandMark" is short for the Urban Land Markets Programme Southern Africa. Based in Pretoria, the programme was set up in May 2006 with seven years of funding from the UK's Department for International Development until March 2013. The initiative is now hosted at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in South Africa. Urban LandMark is working to make urban land markets work for the poor by - Defining what 'making markets work for the poor' means for urban land and developing a distinctive voice for this approach; Mobilising diverse players, including the private sector and civil society, to come up with innovative ways to achieve this objective; Promoting policy dialogue between people; and Bringing about change in government policy and implementation, and in private sector praxis.
