    • Lesson Aims:
    • To look at how Sao Paulo has coped with Urbanisation
    • To understand how the self-help scheme has worked
    CW 5 th March 2004
  • 2. Recap on last lesson - A case study of urbanisation in LEDCs: Lima, Peru
    • Large numbers of people in developing cities live in slum areas called shanty towns.
    • A shanty town is a collection of shacks and poor-quality housing which often lack electricity, a water supply or sewage disposal
    • In Lima, the capital of Peru, a large shanty town called ‘Villa El Salvador’ started in 1971
    • Most of the people there are extremely poor- have little belongings, can't afford food, and have no running water or electricity
    • They live in extreme poverty, and suffer from malnutrition, TB, and Diahorrea amongst other things
    • Despite this, ‘Villa El Salvador’ is a success: a well planned town with an excellent community spirit
  • 3. Self-Help Schemes
  • 4. Self-Help Schemes
    • Most local authorities would prefer not to have shanty towns, but they cannot afford to provide new, high-quality housing to replace them.
    • To overcome this problem, they encourage people to improve their own property through Self-Help Schemes .
  • 5. Self-Help Schemes- Continued
    • In these schemes, the authority provides land, a small loan, cheap building materials and basic services.
    • The squatters then help each other to build their own homes and improve their living conditions
    • Hence: Self -Help
  • 6. Case Study Self-Help scheme in Sao Paulo, Brazil

    • Urbanisation (from rural Brazil, to the big cities) has increased the population of Sao Paulo from 7 million in 1970 to 23 million today
    • The city authorities have an impossible task of providing housing and services for all
  • 9. The rich people of Sao Paulo

    • The properties are located near to the CBD
  • 10. Housing for the poor (Favelas)
    • Location
