While the population living in slums represents almost one third of the urban population worldwide, these neighbourhoods are rarely represented on maps of cities. This deliberate invisibility goes hand in hand with a deficitf knowledge and recognition, which fosters stigmatisation and self-stigmatisation for many inhabitants. GRET has been working for 30 years in towns and cities in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and more recently in the French overseas territories in order for these neighbourhoods to be fully integrated and associated in the construction of inclusive, sustainable cities.
