dc.description.abstract Through six themes: tenure policy; water management; sustainable housing; waste treatment and recycling practices; urban agriculture; and construction practices, nine case studies address diverse urban sustainability challenges facing cities in Peru, Senegal, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Thailand, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Developed in partnership with low-income city dwellers, the authors propose small changes in practice and structure, which can create more balanced, healthy, and sustainable habitats. The book offers insights into both theory and practice. Low-income residents of cities in the global South are subject to numerous environmental burdens and are often excluded from mainstream development and planning. en
