Holding Their Ground
Alain Durrand-Lasserve Lauren Royston
| Price: $ 29.95
Land is fundamental to any strategy for poverty reduction ¿ it is both a basic resource for ensuring livelihoods and a cornerstone of political and civil enfranchisement. Security of land tenure for the urban poor is fast becoming one of the major problems for developing cities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Based on extensive research and case studies Holding Their Ground presents and analyses the main conclusions of a comparative assessment programme on land tenure issues at a global level. It looks at how solutions can be found and implemented to respond to the demands and needs of the majority of urban households living in informal settlements, and analyses how urban stakeholders, under particular social, legal and economic constraints, are devising and employing innovative and flexible responses.
This book fills a critical gap in the current literature on developing-world tenure policies and will be invaluable to policy-makers, professionals, researchers and academics involved in developing, defining and instituting tenure-upgrading policies and programmes.
