The original draft which forms the basis for this report was written in 2001 by Abhirami S. Raghavan. The draft was later revised, expanded and updated by Moses Gathua Kimani between January and April 2003. Their considerable efforts in retrieving, reviewing and summarising the publications, reports and documents referenced in this report are very much appreciated. Inge Jensen and Selman Ergüden, both of UN-HABITAT, supervised the activities and finalised the substantive content of the report. The input of Rainer Nordberg, also of UN-HABITAT, is also appreciated. The electronic version of the report was finalised by Moses Gathua Kimani and Inge Jensen.
