Worldwide case studies of innovative government organizations and community-driven processes form the core of the book, showing new ways to address urban poverty. They show that poverty reduction in urban areas is as much about building and supporting competent, accountable local organizations as about attempting to improve incomes.
'An excellent collection.' Urban Studies 'An important contribution of the book is the reconceptualization of poverty in the development discourse.' Built Environment 'The book includes case studies of innovative government organizations and community-driven processes which illustrate more effective approaches to urban poverty reduction.' Peopleandplanet.net 'The editors wrap the collection with a briskly stimulating introduction and two more extended final chapters on urban poverty and the role of local and extra-local organisations.'
