The slum solution to housing crisis

This week they are focusing on the state of the property market. Without space to accommodate new housing in their intricate corridors and dirt roads, the shanty towns of Buenos Aires have grown upwards. Where a shack of bricks and corrugated iron once stood, within weeks an equally precarious structure appears - but this time over two levels. The transformation of the landscape in the slums is reflected in government statistics. The population in the so-called "emergency villages" of the Argentine capital has grown by 25% in the last two years, now housing some 200,000 people. That is equivalent to almost 7% of the inhabitants of the city, or the arrival of 11 families per day to the 14 slums and at least 40 settlements within Buenos Aires's perimeter. Home ownership Along with his wife and three children, he ended his pilgrimage for home ownership here.

No space "We built little by little. A tiny step closer to an enforceable right to housing. With Uruguay ratifying the Optional Protocol of the International Covenant of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), the residents of ten countries will soon have a right to adequate housing somewhat enforceable under international law.

A tiny step closer to an enforceable right to housing

Last week we moved a tiny step closer to an enforceable right to housing, though we've still got a mile to go. In the eloquent prose of the United Nations, the step we took was this: "After crossing the required threshold of state ratifications on Tuesday, the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights will enter into force on 5 May. " UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay tried to explain what this means: "the Protocol will provide an important platform to expose abuses linked to poverty, discrimination and neglect, which up until now victims have had to endure without any possible recourse at the international level. Allow me to explain a bit further. But how many can do so?

Relocation policies do not excuse forced evictions, still a denial of human rights. Forced evictions are usually illegal under international law, yet they are increasingly routine for many governments, assisted by international institutions.

Relocation policies do not excuse forced evictions, still a denial of human rights

Rather than helping governments justify evictions by tinkering with relocation policies, institutions need to steer governments towards true 'voluntarism'. Development projects need to 'sell' themselves to the poor, not convince them to 'move out of the way', and any project that can't is probably doomed to failure already. Recent research on the eviction of slum residents confirm that governments are abusing forced eviction policies throughout much of the world, despite assurances made in international treaties. Bangalore Informal: alternatives for housing design, planning and implementation? James Whitcomb Riley underlines the planning failures that led to the breakdown of the slum redevelopment program in Bangalore, and highlights a model of housing redevelopment based on self-management and design by slum residents.

Bangalore Informal: alternatives for housing design, planning and implementation?

Bangalore, India's fifth largest urban agglomeration, is an economic powerhouse in IT, telecommunications, biotechnology, garments and heavy manufacturing, as well as a major destination for foreign direct investment. As high-end real estate development has exploded, the costs of acquiring land have skyrocketed, making it nearly impossible for the poor to formally access housing, proliferating informal settlements.

In the face of rapid urbanisation, the national government initiated the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) to finance massive urban infrastructure development. In the city proper, an estimated 2.2 million people inhabit more than 600 informal settlements, yet occupy only five percent of the entire urban area. Planning poverty. Mapping the urban poor: 12 reasons why you should conduct enumerations of your settlements. Community-led mapping and enumerations are powerful tools to return power and democracy into the hands of the urban poor.

Mapping the urban poor: 12 reasons why you should conduct enumerations of your settlements

Marcus Tudehope sets out twelve reasons why you and the communities you work within should embark upon an enumeration of your own. Enumeration: to be counted; it is the fundamental basis of inclusion in the city. To exclude a community from census and mapping activities is to effectively render it invisible to urban decision-making processes. But as the world urbanises, an ever-increasing proportion of humanity is coming to reside in urban poor settlements, outside the scope of most traditional methods of enumeration such as government censuses which underpin land management and urban planning. The implications of the trend for how cities will look and function in coming decades are legion. Cultura Colectiva - Medio de difusión cultural y plataforma de apoyo al talento artístico emergente.
