CIVIS Special Edition March 2010: The Case for Incremental Housing


This special edition of CIVIS was produced for the fifth World Urban Forum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in March 2010. It  features an essay on The Case for Incremental Housing that was prepared for Cities Alliance by Patrick Wakely and Elizabeth Riley of the Development Planning Unit Associates.

The CIVIS notes series shares knowledge and learning arising from Cities Alliance projects and other activities in slum upgrading and city development strategies. It also serves as a platform for policy dialogue and debate among city development stakeholders, including national and local governments, donors and slum dwellers to impact change in the lives of the urban poor and advance the urban development agenda.
