Policy Makers Guide to Women’s Land, Property and Housing Rights Across the World Implementation of women’s rights to land, property and housing rights remains one of the more difficult challenges facing the world today. One of the difficulties associated with developing effective laws and policies on land rights stems from the immensely complex and diverse ways by which land is accessed, and the often gaping expanse between the position of formal laws and the reality of women’s lives. Member States and the international community have agreed upon a series of commitments towards the establishment of security of tenure, for example through the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 7, Target 11 on the improvement of the living conditions of slum dwellers, and Target 10 on access to improved water and sanitation. There is further political impetus and consensus on promoting women’s security of tenure through equal rights to land, property and inheritance through a host of international human rights standards, and more recently through the elaboration of Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 3 and the 2005 World Summit Outcome, where women’s land, property and inheritance rights are seen as an important indicator of women’s empowerment and human development.

Analytical Perspective of Pro-poor Slum Upgrading Frameworks The close of the last millennium saw the development of cities in the developing world being radically shaped by the intrinsically related processes of urbanization and globalization. Neither of these phenomena is new —what is unprecedented is their pace and scale. Indeed,urbanization processes in most developing countriesare intensifying. This poses immense challenges forgovernments at all levels. These are rapid urban populationgrowth and the urbanization of poverty. The latter ismanifested most conspicuously in the proliferation andexpansion of slums and informal settlements, which are home to a growing proportion of urban dwellers indeveloping countries. It presents a major challenge to theinternational community. English Pages: 79, Year: 2006 HS/847/06, ISBN: 92-1-131841-6 Price: USD15

Housing and Property Rights - In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia and Montenegro The hardships that have confronted the people of former Yugoslavia throughout the past decade have been unprecedented in post-World War II Europe. The political and ethnic conflicts of the 1990s have affected all areas of social, economic and political life, and have had a particularly pronounced impact on the housing and property sectors. Indeed, the region faces an array of severe difficulties related to housing and property issues. These include more than a million refugees and displaced persons who are still unable or unwilling to return to their homes. They also include a dysfunctional housing market in most countries, systematic discrimination against various ethnic groups, in particular the Roma, and an expanding informal housing sector. Many of these problems are associated with the sudden shift to a market-based economy. The privatisation of public housing and the loss of tenure and tenancy rights have rendered many people and families with limited and low-incomes more vulnerable to sub-standard living conditions, evictions and homelessness.

Shared Tenure Options for Women Law, Land and Tenure and Gender Review: Latin America (Four Volumes: Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Nicaragua)

Security of Tenure is one of the cornerstones of Millennium Development Goal 7 on the improvement of the lives of slum dwellers, and is the main focus of the Global Campaign for Secure Tenure. In most countries, a range of land rights and tenure types exists, which forms a continuum (from informal to formal). Whether tenure is informal or formal, it is usually understood, recorded and/ or registered in the name of men, leaving women’s secure tenure often dependent on their relations with their in-laws. As women’s access to land and housing is often through their husbands or fathers, they may lose such access after widowhood, divorce, desertion, or male migration. While collective forms of tenure also include women, the decision-making processes are often dominated by men, excluding women from the important decisions regarding the land and housing.

Guidelines on Revolving Funds for Community Managed Water Supply Schemes and Construction of Individual Household Toilets in Urban Slums in Madhya Pradesh, India With rapid urban development, the gap between demand and supply in the water and sanitation sector is widening, imposing stress on the basic infrastructure facilities by the urban local bodies, which often fails to address the growing demand. In the process, the urban poor suffer the most and are forced to live under unhygienic conditions in slums and shanty areas, lacking in basic amenities. The efficient use of existing resources and community participation are imperative to make increased water and sanitation coverage. The problem is more predominant in Asian countries who are ill equipped to provide the needed safe water and sanitation to their growing population. The levels of investments in the sector within the region are quite inadequate to bridge the widening demandsupply gap and to extend services to low income and the needy population. External investments into the sector are inadequate. Most governments are increasingly becoming aware of the significance of domestic mobilization of funds.

Housing Finance Mechanisms in India India is home to over 1.1 billion people. With about one in every sixth person in the world living in India, housing perforce assumes significant importance. Successive Indian governments have regarded housing as a primary need of the people. TThe need to provide affordable housing has been the reason behind State interventions in b the sector. Housing policies, however, tended to be framed by the government from a social rather than economic perspective. Despite explicit recognition of the need for housing, dedicated programmes have only benefited from low public spending. Housing and subsidies have largely synonymous with each other, hence a tendency to view housing finance from the angle of the government’s cash budget, rather than as a developmental activity with tremendous spin-offs to the economy.

The diversity of Asia provides unique opportunities for examining the effectiveness of different policies and instruments. The Asian financial crisis reveals our ignorance of market operations and makes us to rethink the Asian economic environment in which the markets operate and the performance of particular sectoral markets. Housing markets are very important areas. Better policy design relies on better understanding of housing markets. The impact of subprime housing mortgage lending in USA on the global capital market and global economy further illustrates the importance of housing issues. This report examines the operation and performance of housing markets and particularly the impact of government intervention on the pergormance of housing markets in Asia. It presents different approaches and instruments used by different countries to deal with similar housing issues. The Asian experiences and practices can provide inspiration for other parts of the world to design effective and equitable housing instruments and policies.

URBAN ECONOMY AND FINANCING SHELTER

The degree of success and efficiency of housing production and delivery depends on the prevailing legal, institutional and financial framework. Housing finance credit mechanisms are generally weak in most developing countries because of low-income levels, weak regulatory and legal framework provisions for land title and tenure system, absence of effective laws governing credit and absence of credit rating systems. This report, using Tanzania as a case study, reviews the institutional housing finance development constraints in most developing countries and assesses the feasibility and sustainability of developing a housing finance credit mechanism in similar countries.

From Structural Adjustment Programmes to Poverty Reduction Strategies (De programas estructurales de ajuste a estrategias de reducción de la pobreza) This paper’s background is the debate between proponents of pro-growth policies - developed under the form of structural adjustment from the 70s until early 90s - and those advocating poverty reduction strategies, culminating recently in the introduction of Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP) in 1999. At the heart of the policy debate is an apparent choice between growth and equity. It explores the choice between economically productive cities and inclusive cities which embrace a comprehensive approach of social development and poverty reduction.

With rapidly increasing urban populations, cities in Africa are faced with enormous challenges and will have to find ways to facilitate by 2015 urban services, livelihoods and housing for more than twice as many urban dwellers than it has today.

It describes the impacts on health and economic performance, showing the potential gains of remedial action; it analyses the proximate and underlying causes of poor provision and identifies information gaps affecting resource allocation; it outlines the consequences of further deterioration; and it explains how resources and institutional capacities – public, private and community – can be used to deliver proper services through integrated water resource management English Pages: 273, Year: 2003 HS/682/03E, ISBN: 1-84407-004-2 Price: USD25


The Challenge of Slums presents the first global assessment of slums, emphasizing their problems and prospects. It presents estimates of the numbers of urban slum dwellers and examines the factors that underlie the formation of slums, as well as their social, spatial and economic characteristics and dynamics. It also evaluates the principal policy responses to the slum challenge of the last few decades. The report argues that the number of slum dwellers is growing and will continue to increase unless there is serious and concerted action by all relevant stakeholders. The report points the way forward and identifies the most promising approaches to achieving the Millennium Declaration target on improving the lives of slum dwellers.

An Urbanizing World – Global Report on Human Settlements 1996 (Executive Summary), Russian An Urbanizing World is a comprehensive review of conditions and trends in human settlements around the world and of the urbanization process through which more than half of the world’s population will soon live in urban areas. It shows how the growth in urban population has slowed in most parts of the world, while the scale of urban poverty has been underestimated. The report describes both positive and negative sides of cities; including how cities have great potential to combine healthy and safe living conditions, cultural riches, and environmental advantages, as well as what is being done to address the problems of inadequate housing and environmental degradation. The main conclusion of the report is the importance of good urban governance. English ISBN: 92-1-131309-0 HS/397/96R Pages: 48 Year: 1996 Price:USD5

Global Report on Human Settlements 1986 This first Global Report on Human Settlements analyses world-wide and regional developments, trends, and prospects in the field of human settlements. The report reviews the concept of human settlements as it has evolved from the first Habitat conference (convened in 1976 in Vancouver), and analyses human settlements trends and prospects at both the global and regional levels. It selects and illustrates key policy issues in the areas of national development, resource mobilization, institutions, settlement planning and management, building materials and construction technologies, infrastructure, land and shelter. It illustrates the need for a transition from normative and regulatory practices to enabling strategies, and it presents the role of human settlements as both an objective and an instrument of development.

Slums of the World: The face of urban poverty in the new millennium? The current paper presents the results of a first global enumeration of slums at the country level. The data are analyzed and comparisons established at sub-regional and regional levels while trying to understand what is happening globally. This document is the culmination of attempts to come to grips with changes in the way we measure slums, starting by providing an agreed universal definition of this type of settlements and a clear methodological approach. The preliminary estimations presented in this document represent a baseline year level that permits the preparation of quantitative estimates for future trends. By providing the methodology and the quantitative knowledge base, the document strives to enhance the use of information on urban poverty, as a powerful policy-making tool to help induce the desired structural changes for poverty alleviation.
