New Housing for Bangkok Slum Residents [Informal City Dialogues]

Informal housing is changing in Bangkok. Through a program called the Community Organizations Development Institute (CODI), more slum dwellers are being given the chance to take the lead in upgrading or resettling their homes. An alternative to top-down government solutions -- which sometimes do more harm than good -- CODI puts the people most affected by slum conditions at the forefront of the process.
