Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This multimedia sourcebook on CD-ROM synthesizes an extensive body of knowledge and experience in managing urban slums accumulated over the last 30 years. The key lessons learned and their implications for future work serve as a useful tool for capacity building and knowledge sharing for policy makers, practitioners, planning institutions, community groups, NGOs, and university students. Approaches to Urban Slums includes 14 audiovisual presentations (photographs, illustrations, maps, graphic animations, and aerial imagery, along with voice-over narration) and 18 video interviews.

Book News Annotation:

This guide from the World Bank is a supplemental overview to the accompanying sourcebook presented on CD-ROM, which discusses how to improve the lives of those in urban slums. It contains 14 audiovisual presentations and 12 video interviews. Sections consider adaptive and proactive approaches, and feature six profiles of places such as Ecuador and Kabul. Interviews--with urban stakeholders, those in government and nongovernment organizations, academia, and others--are on themes such as working with slum dwellers, planning, land, and policies. Information is based on data accumulated over 35 years from different sources. The sourcebook does not exist in printed format. It is intended for practitioners, policy makers, students, and academics. Two versions of the CD are included--one a PowerPoint and the other a Flash version of the sourcebook.
