The developing world is urbanising fast. In the process new systems of urban land ownership, transfer and governance are also emerging - often from the bottom up.

Understanding how these work, and how they interface with wider markets and with existing land governance regimes, is crucial to urban development that makes space for the poor. This book offers fascinating new insight into these dynamics.
