More than 900 million people currently live in urban slums and the
number is growing as rapid urbanization continues in the developing
world. A Home in the City urges countries to strengthen their focus
on the growing urban crisis and improving the lives of slum
dwellers. Proposed are specific investments and policy changes
required at local and national levels to create a vibrant,
equitable and productive urban environment. It underscores the need
for close strategic partnerships between local authorities and
organizations of the urban poor for slum upgrading and improved
urban management. From adopting citywide strategies and
establishing adequate and affordable infrastructure and services,
to building effective public transport and constructing low-income
housing, it offers valuable methods to prevent future slum
formation and to improve the lives of at least 100 million slum
dwellers by 2020.
