Zambia. Housing (Statutory and Improvement Areas) Act, 1974
Abstract:Discussion of the legal aspects of the problem of uncontrolled and unplanned settlements in urban Zambia. Focus is on the Housing (Statutory and Improvement Areas) Act of 1974. This is situated in its socioeconomic context, discussing such factors as rural-urban migration, urbanization policies, and monetary and fiscal policies. Special attention is paid to the financing of sites and service schemes and squatter upgrading programmes. Conclusion is that, despite comprehensive plans to deal with the problem of uncontrolled urban settlements, there still persists a yawning gap between declaration of intent and actual achievement.
