Description
“The Challenge of Slums”

The day when most of the world’s population will be living in cities is near. Unfortunately, this may also mean that by the year, 2030 as many as two billion people could be living in urban slums.

What policies are needed to help large segments of humanity – in rich and poor countries alike – from living in squalor? Are democratic governments less likely to have large slums, as some experts have suggested? And is there a link between criminality – or even terrorist activity – and slums?

On this edition of World Chronicle, these are some of the questions explored with the help of the Executive Director of UN-HABITAT, Anna Kajumulo Tibaijuka.
