About this book

The Global Report on Human Settlements is the most authoritative and up-to-date assessment of conditions and trends in the world's cities. It is an essential tool and reference for researchers, academics, public authorities and civil society organizations around the world.
The 2005 report, Financing Shelter and Urban Development, presents the first global assessment of housing finance systems, placing shelter and urban development challenges within the overall context of macro-economic policies. The report describes and analyses housing finance conditions and trends in all regions of the world, including formal housing finance mechanisms, micro-finance, and community funding, highlighting their relevance to the upgrading of slums. Recent shelter finance policy development is discussed at the international and national levels and the directions that could be taken to strengthen shelter finance systems are examined.

The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-HABITAT, is the United Nations agency for human settlements. It promotes socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all.
