Urban Ecosystem and Human Health Project (South Africa)    

University academics involved in the project will focus on policy development and implementation in the interrelated areas of housing delivery, the health impacts of human activities and the provision of safe and secure physical environments for all. In undertaking their work, an implicit intention is to train senior students in action based research that has direct benefits for collaborating partners such as the Msunduzi Municipality and local communities. A commitment to feedback of the research findings to collaborating partners is an integral component of the project.
