Guide du maître d'ouvrage : Les registres fonciers urbains
Cette publication, Guide du maitre d'ouvrage les registres fonciers urbains (RFU) propose des suggestions concrètes pour développer et mettre en œuvre un système d'information foncière urbaine. Basées sur des leçons apprises dans le contexte des communes du Benin, le Guide démontre comment les autorités communales peuvent mobiliser les recettes fiscales à travers le foncier. Le Guide présente comment les autres composantes du système RFU, encore moins exploitées dans le cas du Benin, peuvent être mieux mises en œuvre afin de mettre a la disposition des municipalités un système d'information foncière qui contribue au renforcement de la sécurité des droits fonciers des populations urbaines.
Tackling Gender Exclusion. Experiences from the Gender Inclusive Cities Programme
This publication has been produced to disseminate the knowledge and experience gained by all partners working on the GICP (Gender Inclusive Cities Programme). As the GICP represents the first cross-regional multi-country programme in the safe cities for women field, and given the scarcity of information relating to safe cities for women work, it is vitally important that its successes, challenges and lessons learned are shared. It therefore serves as documentation and assessment of the processes and strategies associated with the GICP, reflecting the information collected and analysed by WICI through its coordination activities and by the Programme Evaluator through the evaluation process. It does not attempt to provide a comparative analysis of
the four cities involved, nor does it o er an impact evaluation for the reasons given above.
Building urban safety through Slum Upgrading : Integrated upgrading initiatives by municipal authorities: six cases study
Among the several forms of urban development interventions, slum upgrading offers an incomparable opportunity to provide urban safety for the poor. Slum upgrading, the orchestrated process to improve the built environment of a human settlement, could mobilize many different actors in diverse policy areas at various levels. And it could give momentum to the idea that improvinga neighbourhood comprises an overhaul of all dimensions of its life, including the freedom of citizens from the occurrence or risk of injury, danger, or loss, that is, their safety. Contemporary crime prevention tools are up to the task. Progressively, the field has shifted its main concern from reducing measurements of either crime or violence to improving the quality of life. A holistic notion of "safety" has been brought into play and slum upgrading interventions set a suitable scenario to realize its practical implications.
Gender and Essential Services in Low-income Communities
This report documents the key findings of the action-research project on women's rights and access to essential services in JJ re-location areas of Delhi with a view to address the 'gender service gap' by identifying issues of safety and security with reference to essential services like water, sanitation, solid waste management and power supply. It also delves upon the extent of gender-sensitivity of the current urban essential services governance frameworks in Delhi and explores ways of engaging resettled women with their local government agencies and other service providers
Tools for Gathering Information about Women's Safety and Inclusion in Cities
In order to understand how to create, plan and manage urban environments so that they are safe and inclusive for women and girls, the experiences of women and girls in ci es must be understood by decision-makers and the general public. Any person planning, managing or governing ci es should have accurate informa on about women's and girls' experiences and how they are able to use (or not use) public space. The best way to understand how women and girls experience the city is to consult women and girls themselves and make them an integral part of urban decision-making processes.
This toolkit is important because it provides guidance and tools for the collec on of informa on on women's safety and inclusion in ci es from women and other stakeholders, so that urban decision-makers and the general public alike can understand how to create environments where women and men can equally access their right to the city.
