About the Book
This book fills an important gap in the theoretical library and practical toolkit relating to housing analysis. As rapid urbanization, population pressures, the land squeeze and the unprecedented growth of slums and informal settlements increasingly define the urban form in so many developing countries – never has the need for trenchant and comprehensive analysis of housing been more urgent.

As this Guide states, “Providing adequate housing to millions of low income households globally and particularly in urban centres is one of the greatest challenges facing society”. Right now, and projected  into the near and medium future, millions of people do not, and will not, enjoy, or be able to lay claim  to their basic human right to adequate housing.
