Urban poverty in India and Post-MDG framework

This paper presents facts on urban inequalities in the context of certain targets and reflects on the processes through which the agenda of these targets can be met in the future. It focuses on the targets that pertain to improving access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and improving the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers by 2020. In technical terms, these issues have been categorised under targets 10 and 11 of the Goal 7 of the MDGs.
