Urban LandMark: Call for papers

Urban LandMark’s Tenure Security Facility Southern Africa Programme 2012, supported by Cities Alliance and with co-funding from UKaid, is providing small sale, targeted advisory services on incrementally securing tenure in slum upgrading. The work aims to contribute to improved access to land for poorer people, which in turn contributes to improved livelihoods, active citizenship and asset creation.

The Tenure Security Facility extends and expands on work Urban LandMark has undertaken over the past six years. This work is making a significant impact in changing the profile of the need for incremental tenure in the slum upgrading process and thinking around how this should occur.

Urban LandMark wishes to commission the provision of advisory support services for incrementally securing tenure, to build on the existing approach, to identified partners in five sites in Southern Africa. These Urban LandMark partners are involved in slum / informal settlement upgrading.

An additional component of work in this Call includes the development of materials for dissemination on the tenure advice and a regional guide on incrementally securing tenure in the region. The materials developed will be based respectively on the tenure advice reports developed in the assignment and on a regional guide report developed by Urban LandMark in the course of the assignment.
