    Human settlements l.jpg
    HUMAN SETTLEMENTS

    Human Settlements - well managed entities in which economic growth and social development are in balance with the carrying capacity of the natural systems on which they depend for their existence and result in sustainable development, wealth creation and poverty alleviation and equity (Housing Code). There is a continuum of settlements from rural to urban. The USDG relates to urban human settlements.

    Built environemnt l.jpg
    BUILT ENVIRONEMNT

    Built Environment– refers to the human production of space within the context of urban settlements including infrastructure that supports services required for quality living, both from the social and economic perspectives. The built environment includes infrastructure services, housing, public transport and land use management practices. It also includes community facilities, such as sports fields, arts and recreational facilities, community halls and other social infrastructure that are as critical to building resilient, cohesive, safe and healthy communities.


    Infrastructure development l.jpg
    INFRASTRUCTUREDEVELOPMENT

    Infrastructure Development includes addressing the development of new services, upgrading, rehabilitation, and where necessary replacement.

    While it is a direct response to the constitutional rights of access to basic services, it also provides for economic growth. It is a key source of revenue for Cities % Towns.


    Built env performance plan bepp l.jpg
    BUILT ENV. PERFORMANCE PLAN - BEPP

    Built Environment Performance Plan– refers to the plan that a city compiles and submits to national government in respect of the USDG procedure, the content of which is focused on the approach of the city in managing its built environment to contribute to the national outcome of integrated infrastructureplanning and performance.


    Slide9 l.jpg

    1. BUILT ENVIRONMENT CONTEXT

    “Sustainable Human Settlements and Improved the Quality of Household Life”

    Consolidation of funding a key issue for realisation of the human settlements mandate

    The provision of Bulk and Link Infrastructure continues to be a matter plaguing the optimum performance of the human settlements sector


    Slide10 l.jpg

    1. BUILT ENVIRONMENT CONTEXT

    MIG Cities was established to promote integrated planning and funding of the urban built environment agenda in the large cities.

    Cabinet decision in December 2010 that USDG be established, and funding be allocated from the HSDG and the disestablished MIG Cities grant.

    USDG intends to integrate the release of well located land to the function of planning and funding of the built environment.


    Slide11 l.jpg

    2. INTENTOF USDG

    “Additional” R 21 billion for human settlements function over the MTEF allocated directly to Cities & Towns

    USDG will augment and support grant allocations from provinces to municipalities under the HSDG; it must also support integration of HSDG projects into mainstream city development.

    Should compel improvement in development planning and also improve inter-governmental co-ordination (all 3 spheres) of development.


    Slide12 l.jpg

    2. INTENT OF USDG

    USDG aims to encourage cities to be proactive developers of infrastructure by mobilising domestic capital while at the same time addressing and re-dressing the location of development. It should compel Cities and Towns to manage their capital expenditures in an integrated manner, across all services in good locations and covering the lifespan of projects (development, M&R, upgrading, rehabilitation, replacement).


    2 intent of usdg l.jpg
    2. INTENT OF USDG

    USDG should address PRO POOR BIAS INCLUDING ECONOMIC GROWTH

    • economic growth, and at the same time

    • inequality and poverty alleviation and eradication

      Not either or, but both: USDG focus should be biased towards lowering the costs incurred by poorer households in accessing serviced urban land with secure tenure.


    3 guiding principles l.jpg
    3. GUIDING PRINCIPLES

    • Cities & Towns to lead management of Built Environment

    • Recognise & support capacity in Cities & Towns

    • Reflect balance between poverty alleviation and economic growth in capital expenditure

    • National fiscal support must provide an outcomes-focused supplement to capital budgets of Cities & Towns

    • Cities & Towns must account for performance of built environment
