You are invited to SERI’s launch of the second edition of the 

Slovo Park Informal Settlement Community Practice Note: “Some Gains At Last” 


SERI Slovo Park Draft 8 1



In April 2016, Slovo Park informal settlement won a landmark case. The Court ordered the City of Johannesburg to upgrade Slovo Park in situ through the Upgrading of Informal Settlements Programme (UISP). The UISP provides a framework for municipalities to improve the lives of informal settlement residents, however the policy remains underutilised. 

The webinar will reflect on Slovo Park’s in situ upgrade experience and lessons. Government officials, policy makers, built environment practitioners, civil society organisations, field experts, academics and other interested stakeholders are welcome. 

When: Thursday, 30 July 2020, 11:00 – 12:00 

Who: Lerato Marole (Slovo Park Community Development Forum); Jacqui Cuyler (1:1 Agency of Engagement); Prof. Marie Huchzermeyer (Centre for Urbanism and Built Environment Studies, Wits University) and Nomzamo Zondo (Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa). 

RSVP: Register for the Zoom webinar here by 29 July 2020.
