Description

Published in 1999, this text provides a comprehensive view of the problematique of urban children in developing countries. It starts by demonstrating why it is important to address housing and settlement-related problems faced by the children in developing countries. The book emphasizes that the problematique under scrutiny is so vast that one could face strong difficulties in trying to implement a multitude of isolated/parallel projects and programmes to address a vast number of particular issues. The book demonstrates the existence of strong linkages between the particular issues analyzed. It suggests that a child-centred integrated approach constitutes a good priority for intervention. In terms of evaluation, one could also face difficulties if trying to devise an all-inclusive method for the whole developing world. The book therefore suggests that a simple set of general indicators for evaluation which have international approval should be used in conjunction with locally-constructed indicators.
