How the campaign and PSUP improve the lives of slum dwellers?

 

In consideration of the one billion – and counting – people worldwide living in slum conditions today, it is exceedingly necessary to upgrade slums and regularise informal settlements for the full recognition of the urban poor as rightful citizens. As well as enabling them to realise their potential. It is also fundamental for enhancing the slum dwellers’ individual and collective prosperity in order to enhance the overall prosperity of entire cities and towns.

Partner organisations and institutions joining the Up for Slum Dwellers campaign can make a genuine difference to people living in slums and contribute to the global efforts to improve their lives by supporting PSUP.

Four (4) Areas of Action have been identified for PSUP and for this campaign to contribute to these objectives:

  1. RECOGNISING THE PEOPLE LIVING IN SLUMS
  2. INTEGRATING SLUMS TO THEIR CITIES AND TOWNS
  3. TRANSFORMING NEIGHBOURHOODS AND LIVELIHOODS
  4. CONNECTING PEOPLE AND KNOWLEDGE
