Numerous factors pose challenges to reconstruction in urban areas including high population densities, limited resettlement options, informal housing, unclear land titles and insecure tenure, developments on hazardous land, land-use planning unsuitable for mitigating hazard risks and environmental complexities. This session will review good practices for managing issues of urban housing, land and property rights, spatial planning, and legislation and regulation.
