The Challenge of Slums
United Nations Human Settlement Programme
Price: $ 40

The Challenge of Slums presents the first global assessment of slums, highlighting their main problems and prospects. Using a newly formulated operational definition of slums, it presents estimates of the numbers of urban slum dwellers and points out the key factors that have led to the formation of these settlements. It explains their social, spatial and economic characteristics, and evaluates the principal policy responses to the slum challenges in the last few decades. It is an essential tool for researchers, academics, planners, public authorities and civil society organizations around the world.
