- 20 Downloads
On the basis of discussions in the earlier chapters, this chapter explicitly contends that hasty expansion of urbanization has augmented the growth of urban population in Bangladesh. The majority of these poor people do not have affordable housing and, thus, they are compelled to live in slums. Different initiatives have been taken by different organizations in Bangladesh in order to upgrade the situation of slums in Bangladesh. Among them, a number of programs have been found to be very successful as they have brought a revolution in changing the situation of slums in the country. A final analysis has been made in this chapter, arguing why these programs have been successful. In addition, the major challenges of slum upgradation have been identified and possible ways forward have been suggested.
