Already, half the poor are urban dwellers. Confronted with the sheer scale of the problem, urban policy in the South has undergone a succession of sharp changes of approach over the years.

More recently, as the exciting examples in this book vividly show, there are renewed grounds for optimism that a new approach, with an emphasis on a partnership between the people, NGOs, private investors and local authorities, can have a more effective impact in tackling the multiple dimensions of the urban crisis facing the poor.The purpose of this book is to seek out innovative, but not necessarily well-known, approaches that have actually worked on a rather large scale in a variety of big city contexts in India, Pakistan, Egypt, Indonesia and elsewhere.

Dr Badshahs aim is to identify effective urban practices that are socially equitable, ecologically sustainable, economically viable and - equally important - culturally transferrable into other contexts.This up-to-date presentation of some of the most fruitful current approaches to tackling urban problems, with its wealth of original case study detail collected in situ, makes it a book of considerable value to all those - planners, researchers, teachers, policy makers - involved in seeking to create a better urban future.
