Pedi releases vision for informal traders
A research report outlining a strategy for developing micro-enterprises in the Philippi East Industrial Area has been completed. The document, commissioned by the Philippi Economic Development Initiative in partnership with the City of Cape Town, and prepared by the Sustainable Livelihoods Foundation, is now being used as the basis for planning a way forward to assist informal traders to become more sustainable and to accelerate economic inclusion in the area.
Authored by SLF’s Kayla Brown and Andrew Charman, the report explores the potential arising from developments in the precinct that are either underway or in planning. It provides an exciting vision for how street trade can be formalised and what infrastructure and services are required for micro-enterprises making use of public land in the Philippi area.
