So long as policymakers prioritise economic growth ahead of the basic human needs slums; challenge and response book entitlements of the weakest members of society, the prevalence of slums will inevitably worsen across the Global South, as the following chapters set out to explain. The current model of development is unsustainable not only because the planet cannot endure the environmental costs of unending pollution and resource depletion, but also because the continuing divide between rich and poor — expressed most visibly in the form of urban slums — is leading to social tensions and segregations that no society can ultimately contain. It is all to common for squatters to end up in areas like these and call it home, they are among the first people to settle in areas prone to natural disasters including but not limited to: swamps, toxic dumping grounds, and unstable hillsides just to name a few.
