Understanding Homelessness in Durban: Findings from the Formative Qualitative Phase
In keeping with City’s mandate of sharing knowledge and joint research outputs. The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) in partnership eThekwini Municipality – Safer Cities Unit, presented research findings on a study to better understand homelessness in Durban, at the 13th Built Environment Seminar on 13 May 2016.
 
The aim of the study is to develop a contextualized understanding of the causes, challenges, needs and outcomes associated with street and shelter living in Durban CBD and surrounds. The study also aims to identify and understand the street-living, the various pathways to homelessness, where the street-living are located within the CBD, aspects related to the daily lives of the street-living and an agency-focused approach about how they survive.
 
This study has been designed as a multi-phase project and is strongly rooted in Community-based Participatory Research (CBPR) methodology.
The seminar provided a platform for officials to engage with the results from Phase 1 of the projects grasp the nature and extent of the homelessness challenge in the CBD of Durban.
