Improvements in the lives of 200 million slum dwellers bring achievement of the MDG target, even as rapid urbanization swells the ranks of the urban poor

 

 

The share of urban slum residents in the developing world declined from 39 per cent in 2000 to 33 per cent in 2012. More than 200 million of these people gained access to improved water sources, improved sanitation facilities, or durable or less crowded housing, thereby exceeding the MDG target. This achievement comes well ahead of the 2020 deadline.
