Pagination or Media Count:
Housing policies for urban low-income families in underdeveloped countries have typically stressed the public supply of fully serviced standard housing units, but these policies are mostly unsuccessful. In practice, a large proportion of the demand for shelter has been overflowing into so-called squatter settlements that are developing at the periphery of most large sized cities of the emerging nations. The paper discusses a housing services policy which promises to be effective for these families. The financial component of the policy is studied.
