A Multi-Step Approach to Resettlement for the Urban Poor

PhD project by Isidoro Malaque III

The urban poor play an important role in developing economies, but their informal settlements are often viewed negatively. To discover the ingenuity of the urban poor in providing their own shelter, the aim of Isidoro’s research is to explore how the urban poor occupy different housing submarkets, from living in informal settlements to being a settler in the formal housing submarket.

It is hoped that Isidoro’s research will help formulate new types of housing policies and generate feasible urban design approaches that will offer a better fit for developing countries.
