Slum Regeneration and Development of Sustainable Communities: A Case of Addis Ababa
MetadataShow full item record
Slum settlements in Addis Ababa are examined in this thesis through a sustainability lens. The Modernist slum clearance approach improves physical and economic conditions but removes the community fabric. An Organic approach using ‘leapfrog’ technologies and in-situ upgrading of infrastructure is suggested to resolve this dilemma and help to create a more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable settlement in emerging cities.
