Linkages between Transport and Housing for the Urban Poor: Policy Implications and Alternatives

Linkages between Transport and Housing for the Urban Poor: Policy Implications and Alternatives

Ratings: (0)|Views: 0|Likes:
This paper investigates linkages between transport and housing/security of tenure issues for the urban poor, primarily in the cities of the developing world (the global South). There are significant connections between transport and housing for the poor but they tend to be inadequately understood. This pilot investigation of the issue has found a range of policy implications that flow from these connections. This pilot project reviewed the literature and canvassed views from key experts and stakeholders on linkages between urban transport policy and housing for the urban poor. The literature review included academic and professional literature and a search of documents held by non-governmental organizations that are active in the areas of housing rights or transport. Stakeholders and experts were contacted by email or were interviewed face-to-face.
