This book is an argument for the wisdom of the street, the ingenuity of the improvisers and the long-term, large-scale effectiveness of immediate, small-scale actions. Written by the guru of urban participatory development, this book brings over three decades of experience and knowledge to bear on the question of 'what is practice'? Through an easy-to-read narrative style and using examples from the North and South, the author answers this question and others, looking at what knowledge, competencies and ways of thinking are fundamental to skilful practice in urban development. This is powerful, informed, critical and inspiring reading for practitioners in the field and students and teachers of urban development in all contexts and all places.
Small Change is a must have for the toolkit of every aspiring and practising planner, community leader, development worker and all others working for real, affordable progressive change in this new urban millennium.--Professor Lars Reutersward, Director of the Global Division, UN-HABITAT
