Key Messages for Participatory City-Wide Slum Upgrading: Security of Tenure
Slums and informal settlements are challenges facing many urban contexts. They require innovative and inclusive approaches to solve. Evidence shows that forced evictions are not a short or long-term solution.
Urban dwellers with secure tenure have more long-term and intergenerational stability. This directly promotes sustainable urbanization as local economic development thrives, investments are made to improve living conditions and key human rights are addressed.
