How To Solve The Housing Problems In Brazil Ap

  1. 1. How to solve the housing problems in LEDC’s
  2. 2. 1) Discourage rural to urban migration <ul><li>If the rural areas where people originally lived didn’t have so many problems then people wouldn’t want to leave. </li></ul><ul><li>This means providing jobs for people, improving education & health care, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>It also means better access into the nearest major city for jobs. </li></ul><ul><li>Some countries tried to ban migration! </li></ul>
  3. 3. 2) Build satellite towns to discourage population <ul><li>Some cities have built large new towns on the edge of the towns so that people have a realistic alternative to living in the city centre. </li></ul><ul><li>This way they can still commute to the city to work. </li></ul>
  4. 4. 3) Increase employment <ul><li>Jobs can be created in tourism as this demand in LEDC’s is growing. E.g. the beaches in Rio are attracting more and more tourists each year. </li></ul><ul><li>Locals could work in the informal sector making souvenirs, acting as guides, etc. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 4) Provide self-help housing <ul><li>Here the government provide a concrete base and a small plot of land to the owner. </li></ul><ul><li>As he knows he owns it he is now happy to invest in it. </li></ul><ul><li>Neighbours help each other improve their homes and over time even a second floor may be added. </li></ul>
  6. 6. 5) Elect a stable government <ul><li>In some countries the government have been able to efficiently charge people taxes. </li></ul><ul><li>This means that the governments have had the funding to build new housing for migrants. </li></ul>
  7. 7. 6) Improve transport <ul><li>If better public transport routes were in place then more people would be able to commute into the cities and live outside them. </li></ul><ul><li>Sadly this costs a lot of money which the LEDC governments don’t always have. </li></ul>
  8. 8. 6) Improve transport
  9. 9. 7) Obtain international aid to repair infrastructure (e.g. sewers and education systems) <ul><li>If education was readily available this would reduce the population growth rate provide people with better skills to enable them to get jobs and earn more money. </li></ul><ul><li>Some rich MEDC countries offer loans to the poorer countries to enable them to put education systems in place. </li></ul>
  10. 10. 8) Involve citizens <ul><li>Local authorities have formed Citizens Councils to involve local people. </li></ul><ul><li>This means that they then have a say as to what they want to see changed in their favella, e.g. the roads, the sewage system, etc. </li></ul>
