This case reveals that individual ownership can sometimes reduce de facto security of tenure and undermine socio-economic status. It provides clear evidence of how such settings often 'revert' to informality. From a policy perspective, it shows that intervention must differentiate 'the poor' in terms of affordability/income and vulnerability; allocation processes must be fair and transparent; and livlihood stategies must be accommodated.
