A Practical Guide to Designing, Planning, and Executing Citywide Slum Upgrading Programmes

A Practical Guide to Designing, Planning, and Executing Citywide Slum Upgrading Programmes

While 220 million people have been lifted out of slum conditions over the past 10 years, the number of people living in slum conditions is likely to grow by six million every year, to reach a total of 889 million by 2020. It is necessary to equip cities and their practitioners with the tools and capacities to anticipate and control urban growth and city officials will require knowledge, skills and methodologies that will allow them not only to upgrade existing slums but also prevent the appearance of new ones. This Guide advocates for a citywide approach to slum upgrading, which represents a fundamental shift from piecemeal project interventions to a citywide programme approach. This Practical Guide is part of a trilogy on citywide slum upgrading that includes Streets as Tools for Urban Transformation in Slums: A Street-led Approach to Citywide Slum Upgrading and A Training Module for Designing and Implementing Citywide Slum Upgrading. With the other two partner publications, the Practical Guide provides an accessible tool for practitioners, leading them through UN-Habitat steps towards a successful citywide slum-upgrading program.

Guía Lineamientos Metropolitanos

Guía Lineamientos Metropolitanos

Author:
Las dinámicas de integración regional y metropolitana son una realidad queha permeado a Colombia desde los años 50, en su mayoría como resultadode procesos de conurbación que tienen origen en las migraciones que pordiferentes motivos se han dado desde las áreas rurales a las medianas y grandes ciudadesdel país. No obstante este camino de varias décadas recorridas, son pocos los arreglossupramunicipales que han dado fruto y se han consolidado de manera exitosa. Actualmente Colombia cuenta con 6 áreas metropolitanas conformadas jurídicay administrativamente, que reúnen en su conjunto aproximadamente el 20% de lapoblación nacional, y con una cantidad parecida de esquemas asociativos que se hanfortalecido desde la entrada en vigencia de la Ley Orgánica de Ordenamiento Territorial(LOOT) sancionada en 2011.

Streets as Public Spaces and Drivers of Urban Prosperity

Author:
A key finding of this report is "the expansion of cities has been accompanied by changes in land use, both in terms of form as well as structure. Streets, as public spaces, have lost their importance in terms of their share of land, as well as their prominent role in shaping the culture and history of cities." More info →
