Abstract

Transformation in infrastructure policies has been uneven, with a differential impact on different groups of beneficiaries. This book reviews infrastructure policy since 1994, focusing on policy transformation relating to water, health, land, electricity, housing and transport. These sectors are examined within dynamic fluid policy context. An enormous amount of energy, time, money and effort has been spent to transform infrastructure policies designed to disempower the majority of people, into infrastructure policies designed to empower the majority through establishing equity in infrastructure and service delivery.
