Corporate Social Responsibility, Housing for the Poor in South Africa
South Africa is a land of disparity. Despite having made leaps in social, political and economic arenas since its democratic emancipation, and its recent success in playing host to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Government initiatives to provide housing for the poor remain unsuccessful. The South African Quantity Surveying Firm's role in managing the financial process of built environment projects, highlight its Corporate Social Responsibility in utilising its inherent skill and knowledge to aid government in solving this widespread problem. This book looks at the integration of the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility into South African Quantity Surveying Firms, as an approach to assist in solving the housing problem for the poor in South Africa.
