OKEYINKA, Yetunde Ronke


This paper documents and examines Housing in the Third world cities generally and the effect of poverty and urbanization. It explains the integration of the green and brown agenda as a means of sustainable urban development in developing cities.

The study provides evidence of housing shortages as a result of poverty and rate of urbanization. However, although urbanization is a common phenomenon that is taking place all over the world, urbanization rate is highest in Africa, and as a result, governments of sub- Saharan African countries are challenged in providing housing and related infrastructure for the growing urban population.

It concludes with the importance of slum improvement and highlights the issue of housing shortages as one of the major challenges facing a developing economy.

Keywords: Poverty, Urbanization, Green agenda, Brown agenda, Sustainable development.
