Reducing Urban Poverty – A new generation of ideas

Recognizing a need to develop and strengthen urban-focused practitioner and policy-making ties with academia, and disseminate evidence-based development programming, the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Comparative Urban Studies Project, USAID’s Urban Programs Team, the International Housing Coalition, the World Bank, and Cities Alliance teamed up to co-sponsor an academic paper competition for graduate students studying urban issues. The first competition took place in the months leading up to the 5th World Urban Forum, held in Rio de Janeiro in March 2010.

This publication marks the second annual academic paper competition.
“Reducing Urban Poverty” was chosen as the theme with each author focusing
on one of three topics: Land Markets & Security of Tenure; Health;
and, Livelihoods.
