Bombay (Mumbai) is India's financial capital. According to Mumbai's city housing authority, eight out of the 12 million people in Mumbai live in the slums. Mumbai's slum dwellers are a proud community and the city is also an important microcosm of how slums are developing around the world. Globally one in six people live in slums. At the current rate of growth, UN-Habitat predicts that by 2030, one in every three people in the world could be living in a slum.
