  • Synopsis
    It is now being recognised among development professionals that urban poverty is massive and growing and that rural development initiatives are no longer relevant in slowing rural to urban migration as growth has its own internal dynamic stemming from natural population increase. This book is an important tool to understanding the true level of urban poverty and the essential role that the urban poor play in supporting urban and hence national economies and therefore resulting in a more positive attitude to urban areas and the work being done by governments and NGOs.
