* A hands-on manual for cutting red tape and retooling regulatory frameworks to improve urban housing in development contexts* A must-have resource for planners, regulators, municipal authorities, development workers, NGOs, and community activists* Includes a free CD-ROM containing cases studies, research methods, and other reference material Red tape is a significant stumbling block to the provision of affordable shelter to the urban poor and, indeed, slums are largely the result of inappropriate regulatory frameworks. This handbook tackles the issue of regulatory frameworks for urban upgrading and new housing development, and how they affect access to adequate, affordable shelter, and other key livelihood assets, in particular for the urban poor. The book illustrates two methods for reviewing regulatory frameworks and expounds guiding principles for effecting change, informed by action research. This practice-oriented manual, which includes a free CD-ROM of case studies, research methods, and other reference material, is essential for achieving the Millennium Development Goal 7, Target 11, of significantly improving the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers by 2020.
