A new report shows mass migration to Asian cities is creating a slow-motion humanitarian crisis.
Not-for-profit organisation, Habitat for Humanity, warns the number of people living in city slums across Asia will reach two billion over the next twenty years.
The release of the report, titled ‘Land Tenure and Security in Asia and the Pacific’ coincides with World Habitat Day, which encourages people to reflect on the state of the world’s cities.
Habitat for Humanity Australia’s international program coordinator Luke Millar says proper planning and more aid for urban shelter issues would help improve the situation.
He speaks with Brianna Piazza.
