URBAN PROJECTS MANUAL: A GUIDE TO PREPARING UPGRADING AND NEW DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS ACCESSIBLE TO LOW INCOME GROUPS, (SECOND EDITION), (JOINT EDITOR) LIVERPOOL UNIVERSITY PRESS 1983. BRITISH CONTRIBUTION TO INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE HOMELESS. SECOND EDITİON 2000.
This second revised edition contains updated text and references that have brought the manual up to an appropriate standard for use as a basic development tool for urban professionals and their client communities. The manual is based on field experience in many countries, but particularly that gained in Ismailia from 1977-1980 in designing and implementing the first “sites and service” and upgrading project to be adopted formally and implemented in Egypt.
The manual closely follows the technical process employed in carrying out the project and concentrates on the approach rather than particular solutions. This allows it to be used in many situations. Geoff, Forbes, other contributors and David Allen, the director of the projects in Ismailia, Egypt, on which the Manual is based, hope you find it helpful.
