Improving Rural Shelter In Developing Countries
This publication aims at beginning to fill the vacuum in rural shelter policy:
Firstly, by developing a conceptual framework for rural shelter policy which takes into account several issues which are currently important in development, namely, poverty reduction, the enabling approach and sustainable development; secondly, by analyzing some successful rural shelter improvement projects and programmes in order to isolate both positive and negative lessons; and thirdly, by presenting general guidelines for the formulation of national rural shelter policies in developing countries, within the framework of the Global Strategy for Shelter to the Year 2000. The publication is also in response to one of the themes of the second United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) (Istanbul, June 1996), “Adequate Shelter for All”.
