This chapter explores enabling communities in informal settlements that lack basic building codes and safety standards because governments and these communities’ formal economies do not have the ability or desire to enforce such standards. Instead of humanitarian aid—inadequate to the millions of people who need safe buildings—abductive methods that leverage the capacities of people in such settlements to ensure the safety of the environment themselves allows them to build other aspects of their communities

Keywords:   community engagement and improvement, informal settlements, formal and informal economies, humanitarian aid, safety
