The upgrade of slum dwellings as opposed to demolition and resettlement is becoming the preferred approach. This minimizes the displacement of residents and preserves the informal character of the slums. This informal character is the “historical product of trial and error by a community of users” (Brugmann, 2010) leading to an organic growth of the slums.
