The main goal of this book is to disseminate the useful lessons learned from urban development and favela urbanization operations in Brazil financed by the Inter-American Development Bank and the Brazilian government. These lessons underpin the recommendations for the design of public policies on the subject. It is hoped that they will also contribute to improving the efficiency of specific programs.
