challenge of slums

My homework for today: reading the Challenge of Slums, a analysis of slums worldwide made by UN habitat. It shows the problems, prospects, casestudies, numbers, factors of slums and their social, spatial and economic characteristics and dynamics. The report argues that the number of slum dwellers is growing and will continue to increase unless there is serious and concerted action by all relevant stakeholders. On all reports can de downloaded for free as pdf, it is a very useful database.
