The methodology of housing and planning in the developing world has largely been adapted from practice in post-industrial countries. "Housing the Poor in the Developing World" shows how methods of analysis can be best suited to the local context. This study meets the need to bring together methods of analysis from several disciplines which can be applied to housing. Each method is presented and illustrated with a case study to show how it can be used to inform housing policy in a wide range of countries in all parts of the developing world.
The methods presented range from intuitive to highly structured, and from those dealing with house and neighborhood level issues to those which analyze city or country-wide issues. Unlike other books in this field, this study concentrates on the methods of analysis rather than the housing policies and programs, and convincingly argues that expediency should not be the only factor to be considered.
