India is undoubtedly urbanizing, especially since 1991. But many urban families have been facing housing poverty and struggling to access safe drinking water, electricity, sanitation and other basic amenities. India’s Urban Housing and Poverty: Feasible and Sustainable Housing Development Interventions covers the overall situation of the urban settlements, institutional players and public policy changes with a focus on human settlement issues and the problem of a consistently degrading environment. It makes extensive use of relevant data on the concerned issues and analyzes the core issues at macro level. It covers the history of housing development policies and policies for the urban poor since the 1950s.

The book offers recommendations for sustainable and equitable urban growth. It discusses institutional growth in the housing sector, operations in response to the housing needs, development governance and so on. Equal importance for redevelopment of dilapidated stock and development of new housing units, new efforts towards slum improvement, rejuvenating the cooperative housing movement are some of the strategies proposed and discussed extensively.
