dc.description.abstractThis Forum on Local Economic Development in Small Towns, Housing Delivery and Impact on the Environment is the second in a series that are being convened by the ASSAf Forum Committee on Science for Poverty Alleviation. Noting that poverty is a major issue of concern in South Africa; it is a very broad topic that can be addressed as a combination of selected elements. Local economic development in small towns, several cases on this important topic has been tried. The purpose of this workshop was therefore to bring all these cases together and critically address them as a whole. The plenary decided to structure the workshop to consider the following issues that would guide the national strategy: The population in small towns; Creating entrepreneurship culture amongst the youth; Infrastructure and resource development, e.g. railway lines, artisan schools, etc; and look at economic versus physical model approach. The outcome of the workshop is therefore not necessarily a strategy but rather a methodology of how ‘local economic development in small towns’ can be achieved.en_ZA
