Description: This book opens with an introduction to the issues of urban development and places a human development perspective as its central theme. A City for All explores sustainable human settlements around the world through an analysis of diversity in the city, organizational and participative issues, and the question of gender. The contributors look at the experience of living and working in a variety of cities, creating secure homes and neighborhoods, design and the creation of sustainable environments, and the provision of health services and transport. Chapters examine how women, older people, and people with disabilities experience life in the city. Case study material examines the urban experience in countries as diverse as India, Indonesia, Somalia, Peru, Spain and Britain. Throughout, the contributors discuss practical examples of valuing difference and diversity and demonstrate the need for an inclusive city -- a city for all.
