Vulnerability and Poverty: Making the Urban Poor Safer: Lessons from Nairobi …: By Jean Pierre Tranchant
Nairobi and Mumbai are very good examples of highly unequal megacities. 40% of Nairobi’s inhabitants and 60% of Mumbai are slum-dwellers ; in Nairobi it is estimated that half of the people live on about 1% of the land area.
