About in Situ upgrading :
"Incremental upgrading is not about stopgap or temporary
solutions. It is
an inherently flexible process, that can shift as people’s aspirations grow and
their options evolve. A solar home system, for example, can be
augmented by a grid connection for the household when (and if) such a
connection is provided." www.bop.org.za
