Although poverty remains a primarily rural phenomenon, urban poverty is becoming a severe, pervasive – and largely unacknowledged feature of urban life. The findings in this report show how inequalities within cities have profound socio-economic, environmental and political repercussions. First published in 2001, this flagship report of UN-HABITAT, now published every two years, represents a further milestone in the efforts of the United Nations to gather, promote, and disseminate information for policy makers and the public at large.
