Millions of people living in urban slums have no security from forced evictions and no reason to make their homes and neighbourhoods better places in which to live. Five years on from the UN City Summit in Istanbul, the programme looks at a number of land tenure schemes that are not only giving the urban poor security but also a stake in their future.
