dc.description.abstractThe following project describes the background and context of slum redevelopment in India, Gujarat, and Ahmedabad. Detailed accounts of the economic, social, and environmental conditions at Thaltej are included. In addition, case studies and best practices are described. Through site analysis, interview research, and case study analysis, four alternatives are presented in the report ranging from environmental upgrade to a full-scale redevelopment plan for the area. Financing schemes are considered as well as a public participation plan for the rebuilding process, which applies to all four scenarios. In conclusion, no one alternative is recommended over one another since it is feasible to implement all alternatives over a period of time.en_US
