Empowering Squatter Citizen

David Satterthwaite, Diana Mitlin

Book/Report, 304 pages

This book makes the case for redirecting support to local organisations and processes. The core of the book is case studies and innovative government organisations that show new ways to address urban poverty. They show that poverty reduction in urban areas is as much about building competent, accountable local organisations as about attempting to improve incomes.
