UN MDG report as of July 2011 shows poor improvement in slum situation.
"The number of slum-dwellers has continued to grow, and will continue to rise
in the near future. Progress towards this Millennium Development Goal target has
been insufficient to offset the growth of informal settlements. The number of urban
residents living in slums is now estimated at 828 million"
