Housing The Poor In Asian Cities: Land- A Crucial Element In Housing The Urban Poor
PDF File Size: 990 KB | Download   
The pressures of rapid urbanization and economic growth in Asia and the Pacific have resulted in growing numbers of evictions of urban poor from their neighborhoods. In most cases they are relocated to peripheral areas far from centres of employment and economic opportunities. At the same time over 500 million people now live in slums and squatter settlements in Asia and the Pacific region and this figure is rising. Local governments need policy instruments to protect the housing rights of the urban poor as a critical
first step towards attaining the Millennium Development Goal on significant improvement in the lives of slum-dwellers by 2020.
