Introduction to wiki pages
Welcome to the incremental settlement wiki.
An incremental settlement process can be broken into five phases. Each of these phases is broken into a number of activities. Click on the links below to take you to a list of the activities per phase.
Where government and communities identify, obtain and get land ready on which incremental settlement can occur.
Developers have approval to undertake an incremental settlement project on an agreed piece of land.
Where government, and/ or communities provide a basic level of service and tenure security so households can start to build houses for themselves.
Households have moved onto an agreed plot within the broader piece of land and have access to basic services and basic tenure.
Where households start to build their own houses using their own resources
