Urban Expansion Strategy for Intermediate Cities
in Ecuador
Latin America and the Caribbean Ecuador
Responding to the most current literature that
describes a forceful demographic trend that
anticipates a two-billion person increase in
global population over the next 25 years,
primarily in urban areas of the developing world,
the proposed activities focus on preparing
intermediate cities in Ecuador for sustainable
urban expansion, with the aim of ensuring that
access to residential land for the urban poor
will be affordable in the years to come when the
city limits expand to accommodate the growing
  • Demographic and physical studies to ensure (i)
    adequate land designated for urban use (ii)
    basic arterial infrastructure is developed to
    serve this land and (iii) a regulatory framework
    is put in place to ensure ordered development of
    this land in line with municipal objectives.
  • Technical Assistance social and economic
    sustainability tools to focus on raising
    awareness and encouraging municipal policy-making
    around participatory budgeting and land
    administration processes.
  • Through the use of studies focused on preparing
    the cities for the demographic and physical
    aspects of growth, as well as providing technical
    assistance tools that contribute to the social
    and economic sustainability of the planned
    expansion process, the project aims to provide
    five secondary municipalities with the
    instruments they will need in order to carry out
    sustainable, minimal, long-term planning for
    urban expansion.

Monitor J. Haas
Expected Impact and Results
The main value added of this project is its
far-reaching preventative vision, i.e. the
application of demographic research projections
with enough time in advance to target cities that
will be experiencing the greatest expansion and
therefore taking action to build up the cities
supply of serviced land in order to meet the
needs of the population as it grows. The land
will stay accessible to the low-income population
as it grows in order to prevent the formation of
slums in the first place, and therefore avoid the
costly mission of having to upgrade unplanned,
unserviced, informal settlements ex post.
Prep. Grant for Squatter Management Low-Income
Housing Policy Development
Latin America and the Caribbean - Jamaica
Slum Upgrading

The Government of Jamaica has prioritized issues
of inner-city and urban upgrading as these
pockets of dense urban and peri-urban settlements
have become the flashpoints in the escalation of
crime and violence, extreme poverty and social
exclusion. This project will provide assistance
for a preparation grant to design and develop a
broader technical assistance program proposal for
submission to the Cities Alliance.
  • Analysis of available data on squatter
    management and low-income housing issues
    (including scope of the squatting situation the
    policy, the legal and the fiscal challenges the
    housing demand and supply situation)
  • Assessment of the legal, regulatory and
    institutional frameworks governing squatter
    management, land management and the low-income
    housing sectors in Jamaica
  • Assessment of public expenditure patterns on
    inner-city improvement, regularization and
    low-income housing
  • Prepare TORs, a detailed Work Program and Action
    Plan for Stages 2-4.

The objectives of this preparation grant would be
to undertake a rapid stocktaking of available
information on informal settlements in Jamaica
and to support the Government of Jamaica in
conceptualizing and designing a process by which
a comprehensive Squatter Policy and Program can
be developed. The proposed preparation grant
would support the first stage of a four-stage
process outlined by the Government of Jamaica
that involves (i) stock-taking and proposal
development (ii) detailed analytical work (iii)
policy and program design and (iv) program

Regularization toolkit for sustainable land
regularization actions
Slum Upgrading
Latin America and the Caribbean Brazil
This proposal builds on the successful Cities
Alliance-funded Support to the National Program
for Land Tenure Regularization and
Socio-Environmental Risk Prevention in Precarious
Settlements project. It encompasses the
preparation and distribution of a set of
instruments for the recruitment and training of
local agents (city officials, representatives of
social movements, district attorneys,
neighborhood associations), to disseminate and
scale up the sustainable land tenure
regularization actions being supported by the
Federal Government, which involve precarious
urban settlements throughout the country.
  • Preparation of the graphic design for the
  • Preparation of the handbook of land tenure
  • Virtual law library CD
  • Virtual law library CD
  • Reprinting of the book "Regularização Fundiária
    de Assentamentos Informais Urbanos" (Land tenure
    regularization of informal urban settlements)
  • Production of a primer on land tenure
  • Packaging and distribution of the land tenure
    regularization toolkit.

The general objective of this project is to
expand the scope and enhance the efficiency of
the sustainable land tenure regularization
process in the different regions of Brazil,
through the production and distribution of a set
of instruments for publicizing, capacity
building, and mobilization actions for
sustainable land tenure regularization. The
outputs to be developed should contribute to
training public officials and community leaders,
NGO operatives, law practitioners and other local
change agents in the different regions of Brazil.

Support to the Community-Led Infrastructure
Finance Facility (CLIFF) and Widening the Scope
of this Facility
Multi-Regional Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia
CLIFF is a facility that provides loan finance
for slum development projects that are
implemented by the urban poor, and which have the
potential to influence policy and practice that
in turn can lead to a scaling-up in the provision
of suitable housing and related infrastructure
for the urban poor. This proposal is a
continuation of the ongoing Sida support to
CLIFF, but also aims to widen the present process
and prepare the CLIFF facility and the
institutions involved to examine ways forward
beyond the present project period.
  • The objectives of this proposal are the
  • (1) Consolidation of CLIFF, India
