About the Book
This guide represents a milestone in the efforts of the United Nations to monitor the Millennium Development Goals adopted by the UN member states in the year 2000. These goals address essential dimensions of poverty and their effects on people’s lives. They constitute, in themselves, a commitment by the world’s leaders to the world’s poor, addressing the most pressing issues related to poverty such as health, gender equality, education and environmental sustainability.
UN-HABITAT has been assigned the responsibility to assist United Nations Members States in monitoring and eventually attaining the global “Cities without Slums” target of improving the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers by the year 2020. To proceed with this task, UN-HABITAT has consulted a number of experts to develop generic and operational definitions of terms and concepts related to urban poverty and slums for use by National Governments, policy makers and their advisors, planners, local authorities, statisticians, survey specialists and the academics. This guide offers not only the definitions but also a hierarchy of indicators at the operational level and specific ways to measure them.
