This book presents the research findings of four Vietnamese institutions that, in 1992, designed a joint research project on urban poverty with the financial support of Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The first objective was to identify and qualify urban poverty in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh-Ville. This found that poverty in Hanoi is widespread and not well accepted or acknowledged. On the contrary, poverty in Ho Chi Minh-Ville is concentrated on the city's canals where a "poverty culture" developed long ago. The researchers’ most significant contribution has been their capacity to highlight the phenomenon and process explaining the high speed impoverishment of social groups marginalized by Viet Nam’s current abrupt social, economic, and political transformation. The researchers evaluated whether the government's rehabilitation projects in Hanoi's central wards or its relocation of Ho Chi Minh-Ville canals residents improved or further degraded the conditions of poor urban households. The book also looks at the current urban housing regulations and programs in Viet Nam. It makes a series of propositions to introduce specific tools that are expected to lessen the toll of poverty on urban living conditions. These propositions are central to the new housing policy currently being developed.
