About this book

Guided in focus by the UN Millennium Development Goals, this new State of the World's Cities volume considers the wide range of issues that affect the lives of (mainly poor) urban dwellers: water and sanitation, shelter, overcrowding, malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, education, employment, and more.

The year 2007 will mark a turning point in human history: the world's urban population will for the first time exceed the world's rural population. But with the concomitant strain this will place upon current urban infrastructures, what does this mean for the state of our cities - especially those experiencing the highest rates of `in-migration' (influx of people to cities) in the developing world?

Contents

Part I: The Millennium Development Goals and Urban Sustainability; * Part II: The State of the World's Slums; * Part III: Human Settlements and Vulnerability; * Part IV: Pro-poor Reform for Slum Upgrading and Prevention.

The book forces us to think about the issues facing the urban poor whilst at the same time suggesting ways of improving. An accessible and important text which should be found in every institution library.' http://users.bigpond.net.au
