Streets as Tools for Urban Transformation in Slums: A Street-Led Approach to Citywide Slum Upgrading from UN-Habitat suggests that taking advantage of streets as the natural conduits that connect slums with the city can be a driving force for citywide slum upgrading. It advocates for a shift from piecemeal project-based upgrading to a programme-scale approach, and a change in how we view slums – not as islands of poverty and informality, but as deprived neighbourhoods that are an integral part of the overall city system but disconnected due to a lack of streets or open spaces.
