Resilient Urban Regeneration in Informal Settlements in the Tropics : Upgrading Strategies in Asia and Latin America
(1st ed. 2021)
Part of the Advances in 21st Century Human Settlements series
This book focuses on the implementation of slum upgrading projects and the last generation of citywide programmes that define the future urban configuration of informal settlements, from a citywide perspective, in the Earth's tropical region.
The book presents a study on regeneration experiences in Asia and Latin America and it identifies important points of connection and similarities between the two cases, while also determining that, compared to Asia, informality in Latin America is in its 'second generation.'
