Affordable Housing in the Urban Global South : Seeking Sustainable Solutions, Paperback / softback Book


The global increase in the number of slums calls for policies which improve the conditions of the urban poor, sustainably.

This volume provides an extensive overview of current housing policies in Asia, Africa and Latin America and presents the facts and trends of recent housing policies.

The chapters provide ideas and tools for pro-poor interventions with respect to the provision of land for housing, building materials, labour, participation and finance.

The book looks at the role of the various stakeholders involved in such interventions, including national and local governments, private sector organisations, NGOs and Community-based Organisations.
