  2. 2. Villa Miserianeighborhood of misery <br />Villa Miseria is a form of shanty town or slum found in Argentina, especially in and around the large cities of Buenos Aires, Rosario and Mendoza. <br />In Buenos Aires, the population of villas miseria doubled in the 1990s, reaching 120,000 as of 2005.<br />
  3. 3. Villa 31<br />Built in 1930’s for families effected by the economic crisis of 1929<br />Villa 31 evacuated after military dictatorship, but later repopulated after democracy was achieved.<br />
  4. 4. Life in the Slums<br /><ul><li>Due to the terrain of Buenos Aires, building huts and homes is difficult and uneven, living conditions become increasingly harsh as the slum population increases. </li></ul>Lack of services such as garbage pick-up create large trash piles around the slums.<br />Crime rates in the slum are also extremely high due to lack of emergency and law forces. <br />
  5. 5. Suggestions<br />Create market-rate, affordable, public housing units.<br />Creation and funding from other counties/governments to stop problems in current slums, such as : <br />Creation of law enforcements to stop crime.<br />Creation of services (hospitals, medical services, etc.)<br />Creation of self-sustaining industries, so that the countries can achieve their own significant incomes.<br />
  6. 6. The Problem Worsens<br />Conditions aren’t improving.<br />Predictions say within one decade half of the population of <br />Buenos Aires will live in slums. <br />THE END<br />
