Workshop on informal settlement policies

“The steady increase in the number of slum dwellers: In many developing countries,
urban expansion has often been characterized by informality, illegality and unplanned settlements.
Above all, urban growth has been strongly associated with slum growth, which is primarily due to a lack of appropriate planning and affordable housing. “ (p. 3)

“Many cities are not managing the socio-cultural heterogeneity within their populations, nor are they promoting social cohesion in any appreciable ways. Moreover, the
largely informal character of urban growth
in these countries and cities erodes the legitimacy of the state, creating along with other factors an environment prone to violence, crime and conflict." (p. 6)
