Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP)

Slum Upgrading

The Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP) is an initiative of the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Secretariat, funded by the European Commission and implemented by UN-Habitat.

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.
