Mohammad Hossein Boochani, Head of the TURPC: Establishing social justice prevents the phenomena of informal settlements

Mohammad Hossein Boochani, head of the Tehran Urban Research and Planning Center (RURPC), said at the National Conference on Marginalization Environmental Crises on 13 November 2021: "Having formal and safe housing is the right of all citizens, and this is one of the components of social justice that the Supreme Leader of Islamic Republic of Iran has mentioned many times. The policies of urban managers must move towards citizens having safe and standard housing.

Mohammad Hossein Boochani added: "Having housing is a natural right of all people. What has led to the creation of informal settlements is the lack of land management policies and the implementation of social housing policies for the lower strata of society.

Boochani believes that we can prevent from dangers of this social phenomenon by managing this phenomenon and improving settlements, providing infrastructure and developing the local economy.

Referring to the causes for the establishment of these settlements in the world and Iran, he added: the industrialization of countries, the outbreak of war, the migration of villagers to cities and drought are the causes for the establishment of informal settlements on the peripheries of large cities. But its pattern varies in different countries according to the socioeconomic conditions and policies of the rulers. For example, in Iran, we have faced this phenomenon since the division of agricultural lands.
