Extending water and sanitation services to backyard tenants

Last year, Isandla Institute sourced a legal opinion from a Senior Counsel, focusing on the obligations and powers of municipalities to provide basic services for backyard dwellers on private land. This showed that there was no legal obstacle to providing these services. Based on this, Isandla Institute commissioned a paper, informed by interviews with stakeholders, on the impact of backyard housing on water and sanitation infrastructure, to further inform debate.
