Community Infrastructure Development in Urban Area - Creating Jobs While Improving Low-Income Urban Settlements
PDF File Size: 8.58 MB | Download   
Poverty in the world is becoming more and more urbanised, mainly as a result of the general urbanisation of the world’s population, both due to natural urban population growth and because of a steadily increasing influx from rural areas into cities and towns (especially by rural poor). It is estimated that by 2030 more than half the Asian population will be urban (equal to 30% of the world’s population or 2.7 billion people), and that approximately 25% of this urban population will be poor (675 million people in Asia alone). These urban poor tend to live in low-income settlements, where they face high levels of under and unemployment and poor access to infrastructure and basic services. There is therefore an urgent and growing need to address both the lack of access to infrastructure and basic services as well as the high incidence of poverty
and under/unemployment in these urban low-income settlements.This guide provides a framework for implementing community infrastructure development in
urban areas in Nepal, aimed at creating jobs whilst improving low-income settlements. After a brief introduction of basic data on urban development and poverty and an explanation of the relationship between poverty and infrastructure development, this guide presents community contracting as a means of creating employment and incomes, whilst at the same time improving
the access of the poor living in low-income settlements to basic services. The guide goes into detail regarding the different steps involved in community infrastructure development in urban areas, presenting experiences from four pilot projects carried out in Nepal to further illustrate the problems to be faced and the recommended solutions.
