This report focuses on the research in the city of Huambo. The research used field research and new mapping techniques to, firstly, supply baseline data on the five characteristics which the United Nations uses to define slums for the Millennium Development Goals and, secondly, to explore in more depth the spatial aspects of poverty and urban environmental issues in Luanda. The five characteristics which the United Nations uses to define slums are poor security of tenure, difficult access to safe water, low levels of improved sanitation, low durability of housing structures and overcrowding. The spatial aspects of poverty and urban environmental issues that were studied were land markets and prices, housing location and transport, and flooding and erosion risk.
