This project examined how municipalities interact with marginalised residents in terms of the housing strategies adopted and attempted to explore alternative options for community participation relating to these. The goal was to improve communication between local government authorities and marginalised residents and to ensure that the strategies, policies and actions of local authorities reflect the views of the marginalised. This involved working with both city officials, representatives of civil society, and residents.
