dc.description.abstract Rising land prices have forced the urban poor out of inner-city informal musseques to occupy lower-valued environmentally risky sites on the margins of cities, such as river basins, dangerous slopes, and areas susceptible to flooding. New mapping techniques supplied baseline data on indicators used to define slums and explored the spatial aspects of poverty, such as how people's location with respect to services, economic opportunities or environmental risks affects their overall opportunities or vulnerability. The urban areas of Luanda, Huambo and Cachiungo were chosen as representative of different types of urban areas in Angola. en
