Training for Township Renewal Initiative 2011

The Training for Township Renewal Initiative (TTRI) is a joint project of the National
Treasury, the Department of Provincial and Local Government and the South
African Cities Network. The project has received assistance from the
FinMark Trust, Urban Landmark and the Development Bank of Southern Africa.


The purpose of this initiative is to promote and support development
and renewal in South Africa’s townships, where some 40 per cent of the country’s
urban population resides. The initiative centres on training, helping to build
local expertise to conceptualise, design and implement township development
projects countrywide.


The 2011 publication for the TTRI include:
