oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Town planning and housing with particular reference to the social and economical aspects
In the papers that have been presented special emphasis has been laid on planning and housing in European areas and in the native urban areas. No particular mention has, however, been made of the position in the rural native areas. Delegates may not be aware of the fact that in the rural native areas, which are almost 18,000,000 morgen in extent, some three to four million natives at present have their homes. A large proportion of these natives make a living from the land. Others, however, make use of the native reserves to accommodate their families, but the major portion of their income comes from employment in European areas from which they return to the native reserves as often as circumstances permit.
