This is a revised edition of a manual first published in 1983. This revision contains updated text and references that have brought the manual up to an appropriate standard for use as a basic development tool for urban professionals and their client communities. The manual is based on field experience in many countries, but particularly that gained in Ismailia from 1977-1980 in designing and implementing the first \"sites and service\" and upgrading project to be adopted formally and implemented in Egypt. The manual closely follows the technical process employed in carrying out the project and concentrates on the approach rather than particular solutions.
