Allan Cain, Director, Development Workshop Angola - Africa China Exchange on Urban Poverty Reduction

Allan Cain provides examples of the tools used to understand links among urban poverty, access to land and land markets in Angola’s capital city Luanda. China is now Angola’s largest partner in post-war reconstruction but thus far investments have not extended to Luanda’s urban poor in informal settlements. A group of Chinese and African academics, institutions, and urban development practitioners have come together to examine how investments can be better targeted to reduce urban poverty rather than increase income disparities within African cities.
