Field Visit Notes
thinking CITY-WIDE in CHANTABURI, Thailand
NOTES ON A VISIT TO THE CITY OF CHANTABURI, THAILAND, APRIL 26, 2009 On April 26, 2009, In the past five years, the city-wide community upgrading process in Chantaburi has transformed a city where the poor and the city used to have nothing to do with each other into a city which is well on the way to achieving secure land and housing for all its poor citizens, through an upgrading process that is managed and implemented by communities themselves, in close partnership with the local govern- ment and other local actors. For that reason, the city makes another very good case-study for the kind of city-wide processes the ACCA Program is trying to promote. The following report gives a brief picture about the visit and the larger city-wide community upgrading process in Chantaburi. 9 pages photos and text PDF 1.8 MBs

ACHR Visit to Mongolia 2005
2005: Arif Hansan writes: The Mongolia visit was made in co-ordination with UN-ESCAP which has initiated a housing and infrastructure support programme in Ulaan-baatar. What is written below is from what I have learnt by attending the National Dialogue on Housing the Poor in Urban Economies, a site visit to government built housing barracks, a visit to a “ger” settlements in Ulaanbaatar, and discussions with government and NGO representatives and residents of the barracks and the ger housing communities.There are strong similarities between conditions in Ulaanbaatar and Almaty in Kaza- khstan where I have worked with local communities and NGOs. 8 pages, 1.9 Mb
