Abstract: 

Informal settlements have been one of the outcomes and prominent characteristics of today’s urbanization in developing countries including Iran. During the last century, various approaches were selected and implemented by planning systems in different countries for solving or decreasing the dimensions of this problem. From ignorance up to empowerment covers a range of polices and measures which have been considered with respect to the geographical and historical condition.
These polices have been promoted under the effect of schools, political and implementation systems or international organizations and have been experienced more or less in these countries. In Iran in Kermanshah city, as one of the major provincial centers, having the problem of informal settlement, over the past decades, different measures and approaches have been experienced for solving this problem. Today, after decades of urban planning system efforts, informal settlement has remained as one of the main problems of urban management. In the newest experience, Iran’s Urban Planning system has tried to decrease or control the dimensions of this problem by empowerments and improvement programs. But still there are short comings in this area which prevents the achievement of integrated urban development.
