"The focus of South Africa's land reform programme is the acquisition of land and securing tenure rights. Land reform has provided many people with land. However, access to land is only one component of settlement. Settlement includes the acquisition of land and shelter, but is not purely about solving the physical accommodation needs of the poor. The creation of viable rural human settlement is multidimensional: it is the creation of living environments through access to land, infrastructure and housing. At present there is no clear national policy to guide the processes of rural settlement creation."
