Promotional Information

'Experience has shown that participatory, people-centred housing reconstruction is far more effective than top-down, institutional delivery. However, these processes are more complex, and widely believed to be impractical for largescale programmes. This important book demonstrates definitively that this assumption does not hold.' David Simon, Professor of Development Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London 'The breadth of contributions provides considerable material for readers seeking to understand and support participatory and integrated approaches for reconstruction.' Diana Mitlin, University of Manchester and Senior Research Associate, IIED 'The timely message of this book is that participation in housing reconstruction after disaster gives a more sustainable result.' Judith Eversley, International Affairs Officer, Royal Town Planning Institute, London
