Informal City Reader
Next City / The Rockefeller Foundation
The Informal City Reader is a compilation of articles from the online magazine Next City, that share the stories of informal workers and settlers in Accra, Bangkok, Chennai, Lima, Manila and Nairobi—offering a window into the lives of street vendors, slum-dwellers, and waste-pickers. The reporting showcases the interplay between formal and informal systems, and informs readers about how many of the developing world’s cities are growing.
