Low Income Housing in the Developing World: The Role of Sites and Services and Settlement Upgrading’
(Editor), John Wiley 1984
Sites and services and settlement Upgrading are two major approaches to the massive need for low-income housing in the developing countries. Students and teachers of development administration, urban studies, and architecture in the Third World and practitioners in housing and architecture with interests in developing countries will find here a comprehensive survey of the experience of these approaches throughout the world. It combines detailed case studies with an examination of specific aspects such as the roles of international agencies, consultants, and users, the impact of land markets, institutional and political factors, and the options for servicing and building shelters in such projects.
