Framework for evaluating Continuum of Land Rights scenarios.

The starting point is that planning has to adjust to a new global context. Traditional forms of planning were formulated before concerns such as climate change, inclusion, metropolitanisation, spatial justice, gender, or resilience were considerations. Furthermore, an unprecedented extent of urban development is now unplanned and many cities are overwhelmed by dysfunctional and often slum-led urban growth. Planning needs to adjust to these new realities so that we do not continue on the current trajectory.
Thus, there needs to be a culture change within the planning profession and among decision-makers and stakeholders. We need to build on the strengths of the planning tradition and to adapt to the complexity of accelerating global change by delivering at scale at a more rapid pace. Fiscal, taxation, governance, management and environmental regulation measures need to be supported by an integrative and nimble UTP that is strategic, participatory and based on human rights principles.

It is impossible to stop the influx of migrants into urban areas in the foreseeable future. People will continue to move towards cities in search for livelihood opportunities, security, and a decent life.

Denied access to formal job opportunities and social protection systems and excluded from the urban advantages that they are seeking in cities, migrants, particularly the most vulnerable ones, are often stigmatized as a problem rather than recognized for their energy and potential contribution to urban life.
