Policy Brief - Sustainable Solutions Towards Prevention of Slum Gentrification after Land Allocation to Individual Squatters

One way through which poverty in cities is manifested is through proliferation of slums and informal settlements. To address the question of growing slums, various policy interventions have been attempted including but not limited to; issuance of land titles to informal settlers/squatters, slum upgrading through enabling approaches such as infrastructure improvement and slum eradication through evictions.

Policy Brief - Alternatives to eviction, scenarios for access to land by the urban poor in Kiandutu Informal Settlement Thika, Kenya

Establishing land rights in informal settlements is more often than not a protracted engagement pitting the government on one side and the land owner(s) and the slum dwellers on the other.
