Kisa vle di 'bidonvilizasyon'?

bidonvilslums, ghetto
bidonvilizasyon → when cities are transformed into slums.  For example, you'll find that in Port-Au-Prince.  People are running away from poverty and misery in the outskirts of Haiti.  They come to the capital and start building piles of shabby little houses wherever they please.  These bidonvil may be built in streets originally reserved for vehicular traffic, close to public buildings, in other residents' driveways and backyards ... you name it.  And, there's no respect for building codes.
