Reducing urban poverty: a new generation of idea

Reducing Urban Poverty: A New Generation of Ideas highlights the research and innovative thinking of the next generation of urban planners, practitioners and policymakers. Edited by Lauren Herzer, the report comprises the winning essays from the second annual academic paper competition co-sponsored by the Cities Alliance, the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Comparative Urban Studies Project (CUSP), USAID’s Urban Programs Team, the International Housing Coalition, and the World Bank. The six essays focus on three topics related to reducing urban poverty: Land Markets and Security of Tenure, Health, and Livelihoods.
