Abstract

Inclusion is one of the critical hallmarks of the New Urban Agenda, and is nowhere more pressing than the inclusion of informal settlements and informal economic activities into wider urban systems. Broadly framed as settlement and activities which are not recognised by the state or do not meet state regulations, informality has been described as the new normality of urban life under rapid urbanisation, but is also on the increase in other urban contexts.
