Settlement planning and assisted self-help housing

Published by Delftdigitalpress
The former volumes of the serie "Integrale Stadsvernieuwing"
presented the discussion and the analyses of different strategies
of urban renewal that can lead to
a broad understanding of the urban problem in European contexts.
In this volume, the discussion is placed in the context of a
particular Developing country. The typical process of
urbanization of the Sub-Saharan African cities is
demanding urgent, innovative and non orthodox
planning and implementation measures
from the local government authorities.
This study advocates that settlement planning and assisted
self-help housing should form the core of a broad and
integrated neighbourhood upgrading policy in the city of
Bissau, Guinea-Bissau.
It argues that neighbourhood upgrading is one of the instruments
to alleviate urban poverty and is a feasible strategy to set up
sustainable grassrooted urban development and management processes.
The involvement of the Netherlands in the development of Guinea-Bissau
provided the opportunity of cooperation between the Municipality of Bissau
and the SNV -Organisatie van Ontwikkelingssamenwerking en Bewustwording
who is responsible for the implementation of the
Neighbourhood Upgrading Project of Bissau-PMBB.
The provision of basic infrastructure, resident's
participation, labour intensive techniques in implementation works,
the optimization of local building materials, neighbourhood based management,
housing, sanitation and urban planning are some of ~e
points of the agenda of the project.
This study presents an analysis of the development
of the city with a particular emphasis on the development of the approach
of the project and to the issues of housing and urban planning.
Architects, urban planners, researchers, policy makers and those who are
directly or indirectly involved with urban problems of the
developing countries will find this study very useful.
