Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP)
Launched in 2008, the overall objective of PSUP is to contribute to the improvement of the living conditions of the urban poor and to contribute to millennium Development goal (MDG) 7, including: target C, to halve, by 2015, the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation; and, target D, to achieve a significant improvement in the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers by 2020.
Where PSUP is being implemented
The Programme has grown considerably since it was first launched in 2008. Beginning with only 12 countries, with the support of the European Commission and the ACP Secretariat the PSUP has expanded to 34 countries, involving more than 150 cities.
|The PSUP has set up the e-learning platform MyPSUP.
MyPSUP is exclusively for PSUP country teams and the UN-HABITAT PSUP team.
