A City for All : Valuing Difference and Working with Diversity
By the turn of the century more than half the world’s population will live in urban areas. This rapid pace of urbanization is forcing a rethinking of development priorities, and this book explores some of those initiatives.
The book opens with an introduction to the issues of urban development, taking a human development perspective as its central theme. Best practice in sustainable human settlements around the world is explored through an analysis of the nature of diversity in the city, organizational and participative issues, and the question of gender.
