​The Growth Lab's "Development Talks" is a series of conversations with policymakers and academics working on economic growth and development in countries, regions, states and cities in the US and around the world. The seminar provides a platform for practitioners and researchers to discuss both economic growth and development and analytical work centered on policy. 
Speaker: Carel Kleynhans, CEO of Divercity Property Group.

Divercity Property Group is South African’s leading investor in well-located affordable housing precincts: Divercity invests in affordable rental housing in well-located urban precincts with scale. In this talk, Carel Kleynhans will discuss specifically what Divercity does in South Africa and why they think that a new vision for pro poor urban development that is scalable and commercially viable can really be an instrumental part of addressing pretty much any one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals or any or any other developmental outcome. This session will be moderated by LaChaun Banks, HKS Director of Diversity & Inclusion. 
Location: HYBRID W434 A.B., HKS / Zoom
