Planning and design has an important role to play in ensuring inclusive cities. Yet efforts to create world class or model cities more often exclude public. needs e g housing livelihoods and accessible space. Current planning approaches are reinforcing spatial segregation and creating. spaces of exclusion Tenure insecurity is widespread. Insecure tenure impedes infrastructure and services thus further reinforcing. marginality and poverty, Eviction and tenure insecurity destroys social networks and capital and. encourages corruption and criminal networks, Fragmentation territorialisation and isolation of communities creates.
tensions especially in cities of diversity Less interaction of people in urban. society negatively affects a shared sense of urban citizenship.
