      Ten Principles for Developing Affordable Housingseeks to help those who wish to develop housing for low- and moderate-income households understand what it takes to make affordable housing projects happen. It also seeks to help policy makers and community leaders understand the principles behind the production of affordable housing.   More than half the planet’s population lives in urban areas, and cities are absorbing most of the world’s population growth, putting pressure on the limited supply of housing. Ira Peppercorn ’85, a consultant on international development, says that creating affordable housing in the developing world requires truly understanding how people in those communities live.

        Over 40 percent of the population of these countries - 4 million people in , households - lives in poverty housing in overcrowded towns, squatter settlements and rural villages. Chapter 2 reviews definitions of poverty housing and their applicability to Pacific island nations. Chapter 3 draws on these definitions to present estimates of the number of people and households living in poverty housing in the developing countries of the Pacific islands. .

      The concept of housing requires a new understanding to effectively address the pressing issues of slums, the urban divide, economic and human development, and climate change. No longer regarded as simply a roof over one's head, housing today plays a crucial role in achieving sustainable development. Sustainable Housing for Sustainable Cities outlines key concepts and considerations. Housing Policy in Developing Countries The Importance of the Informal Economy1 1. Introduction In the foreword to The Challenge of Slums (), published by the United Nations Settlements Programme, Kofi Annan wrote: Almost 1 billion, or 32 percent of the world‟s urban population, live in slums, the majority of them in the developing world.
