Transcript of Neza-chalco-itza

Neza-chalco-itza
Overcrowding in the slums is a major problem. Diseases and infections pass easily between people. Food bought from markets is often old or it is usually left on the streets in the sun. The death rate in the slums are much higher than in a developed city, as people are able to be treated. The conditions are often unsanitary. Overcrowded living quarters offer perfect conditions for the spread of highly transmittable diseases. The people have access to waterborne diseases and malnutrition, especially amongst children because of the lack of clean water.
Illiteracy, drug-addiction, and unemployment constitute just some of the Conditions in the slum.

Improvements
Is the slum sustainable?
Background
The Neza-chalco-itza is one of the largest slums in the world, it is estimated that around 4 million people live there.
The slums in Mexico started growing in the 1900s this was due to the railway being created bringing a new industry and this attracted many people as it meant new jobs and more tourists.
Problems within the slum
A primary problem within the slums is the lack of water; the 2000 census found that 1.8million people live without water in their homes. For households that can afford water, it is delivered by truck. In Mexico City the government provides potable water for free, but the distributors charge between 80 and 500 pesos per truck. Customers are charged for the water, as a result, families ration their water and some dwellers are even forced to harvest rain.
There is a self-help scheme. The ideas thought of are run by the local people to help themselves out of poverty. This provides good housing, education (schools and nurseries) and health centres. The local people dig pitches to access clean water. The government’s social assistance provides loans and credits. New improved transports links and have a tough emission policy to reduce pollution. All this helped them get a better living, better housing, better health and this also created awareness for them.
Housing within the slums is still a problem as most of the improvements made are by the community. They do not have access to money that can reconstruct the slums but it is progressively improving. Water is becoming easier to access and most children are privileged to be able to go to school each day.
