Towards inclusive urban development: an opportunity to be seized

image of Towards inclusive urban development: an opportunity to be seized

Review of different manifestations of informal settlements in the UNECE region indicates a number of contributing factors: rapid urbanization, displacement of vulnerable people, dysfunctional land management and planning systems, and persistent shortage of affordable housing. The ways different countries come to terms with the existing illegal and informal development as well as the ways they find to prevent such development in the future differ, as they depend upon history, politics, economics and social development (and the type of informal settlements). Increasing decentralization and changes in governance in many countries will also impact these choices, since solutions will require action at all levels of government, leadership from municipal administrations and the mobilization of residents of informal settlements.
