Abstract

The book, which was prepared for the 2001 United Nations General Assembly Special Session on Human Settlements (Istanbul + 5), makes the case for an 'enabling' approch to local economic development, urban land policy and management, environmental upgrading and housing delivery, as set out in the United Nations Habitat Agenda. It relates these issues to the concepts and practices of subsidiarity, partnerships and sustainability, in the braodest sence and identifies the roles of the principal actors and other stakeholders. It is illustrated by 84 1-2 page case studies of successful and/or otherwise interesting and innovative case studies drawn from around the world. These are copiously cross referenced and sourced for follow-up and further study. The book is structured in four sections under the titles: Setting the Habitat Agenda; Sustainable Urban Development; Adequate Shelter for All; and The Transfer of Experience. It is graphically user-friendly and illustrated in coulour throughout.
