Beyond Housing: Child and Community Centered Habitat Transformation

Aromar Revi | 1994


The volume is one of the first international publications to link the improvement of the built environment on the ‘world of the child’. It underlines the need for the integration of a child focused perspective into human settlement programs worldwide and presents an integrated method of child-centred program appraisal.

The cases are primarily from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal and India, with a few other international examples
