Speedy urbanization, illegal and arbitrary developments have contributed to large informal settlements in the capital Kabul. Post-war refugees, the return of internally displaced residents to the city, and rural migration are some causal factors. Today informal settlements cover about more than 69% of Kabul and about 82% of the populations are living in such places and suffering from a very bad condition of life; poor infrastructure, environmental degradation, lack of land for open spaces, parks and medical services are the main problems. Urban Redevelopment (UR) has practiced in many countries, in some regions it was failed but it has considered a well method for slum clearance, dealing with the rapid urbanization, enhancing the quality of life and releasing land for the open space and other public facilities. This paper basically focused on a literature review on urban redevelopment practices in different countries and through the international experiences which took place about the slums, we determined a number of recommendations to deal with the problem and to create a sustainable approach for sensitive redevelopment in the informal settlements of Kabul.
