Brief narrative Lack of available land has forced many of the rural population into the urban areas. Many live in Brazil`s shanty towns, or "favelas." Many of these settlements, particularly in teh city of São Paolo, were evicted during 2005 and evictees have not been provided with alternative accomadation or compensation.
