Building knowledge and skills to face slums: learn how to make cities work better for everybody in this 1 month post-graduate course.
What are the underlying causes of informal occupation of land and slum formation? Land management is the basis for creating a viable alternative to households that have little choice but to resort to slums. Participants will learn to develop upgrading strategies to improve slums, and to formulate policies that create options to prevent new slum formation. The course derives from international case studies and is intensive in nature and innovative, demanding a proactive attitude from participants. They are engaged in a number of learning environments that comprise lectures, practical exercises, case study analysis, role-playing games, video films discussions and controversial policy debates.
The tuition fee for this programme is 2,500 Euros excluding travel, literature 75 Euros, insurance 36.50 Euros, visa and living costs. Cost of living in Rotterdam is about 870 Euros a month (including costs of accommodation).
Existing informal settlements need to be regularised and upgraded but their growth urgently needs to be decompressed, therefore an adequate land management scheme is called for.
This should create tools and strategies that enhance and scale up the supply of adequate serviced land that is accessible for all, particularly to the poor. Land management is the basis for creating a viable alternative to households that have little choice but to resort to slums. Because housing cannot be dissociated from land a sound housing policy needs to begin with a sound preventive land policy.
