dc.description.abstract Housing and urbanisation are two important trends that have been shaping the world since some centuries ago. These transformations will continue in the future and will affect the prosperity of world's cities. New local and international commitments will be needed to face these challenges. Inclusive planning, taking into account the most vulnerable groups, and with the addition of a human rights rationale, could help to find the balance to achieve sustainable urbanisation. Although this interesting connection (and its challenges), between urbanization and housing, is present in many cities, the case of Rio de Janeiro's favelas illustrates the consequences of the lack of urban planning, with the perpetuation of slums and informal settlements. en_US
