pdf.png Enumeration as a grassroot tool towards securing tenure in slums: An initial assessment of the Kisumu experience (Eng - 2008) HOT

Download

Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) recognises community-based slum enumeration as a potential grassroots mechanism tool which could assist in achieving its objectives relating to land management and tenure security. This paper analyses a community-based slum enumeration exercise in Kisumu in relation to these objectives. The enumeration was carried out in Kisumu as part of a city-wide slum upgrading initiative. The paper draws on a peer evaluation that included interviews with slum upgrading stakeholders as well as community-based focus group discussions, mainly with enumerators. The paper finds that coordination of the slum upgrading initiative, and beyond this of wider and often competing city initiatives, is imperative for a grassroots enumeration exercise to link up effectively with the planning authorities and for grassroots trust to be sustained for ongoing verification and updating of the enumeration data. Key findings towards securing tenure include the importance of various forms of mobilisation that accompany enumeration, and of  the informal and formal knowledge generation that results from the enumeration process.

Abject poverty is the plight of so many of our fellow humans. One in five spends their life in urban slums. One in two lacks basic sanitation. Governments around the world have formally recognized universal rights to adequate housing and living standards. Yet increasing numbers only manage to trade rural for urban destitution. This is because institutional frameworks deny them the opportunities to which we are all entitled.


Lack of access to land, and fear of eviction, epitomize a more pervasive exclusion from mainstream social, economic and civic opportunities, especially for women. Precarious conditions generate poverty as people have no future in which to invest. As their numbers keep mounting, the prospects for our collective sustainable urban development look bleak.

pdf.png Handbook on Best Practices, Security of Tenure and Access to Land (Eng - 2003) HOT

(1 vote)

Download

The Handbook on Best Practices, Security of Tenure and Access to Land--Implementation of the Habitat Agenda (2003) reviews material produced by UN Habitat partners up to and including 1999, in terms of the implementation of the Habitat Agenda. At the time of publishing, this document was the most comprehensive global overview of progress made in countries towards achieving the Habitat Agenda in the area of land tenure and land management/administration. While a few of the examples in the Handbook are no longer current, many examples remain best practice, and the general trends identified remain cutting edge at the global level. The breadth and depth of information presented in the Handbook is intended to encourage and stimulate further innovative efforts to provide more inclusive land access and security of tenure for the urban poor. The Handbook will be useful to anyone wishing to benefit from the wisdom and lessons learned by UN Habitat, other organizations and over 100 academic experts in the areas of land legislation and management.
