The UN Habitat World Cities Report 2016 is a document containing some quite staggering figures. One of the most astonishing is the 3 billion people that will be living in informal settlements by 2050. A significant number of these substandard houses will be in Africa and Latin America, where the suburbs compete in terms of expanse and density with the cities of developed countries.How should we deal with the numerous problems involved in these degraded neighbourhoods and which, very often, are built by their own inhabitants? Each country, even each settlement, is a unique case. The local culture and even the history of the cities in which they emerge form part of their idiosyncrasy, which does not allow for the establishment of global solutions.The experts gathered by the Right to the City panel during the Smart City Expo World Congress 2019 did have some ideas in this regard. Fundamentally different, but precisely because of this, they need to be studied in more detail.
