QUICK GUIDE for participatory, city-wide slum upgrading: City-Wide slum upgrading for sustainable urbanization
City-wide, ‘at scale’ participatory slum upgrading refers to a strategic slum upgrading choice and approach to poverty
alleviation. It emphasizes the integration of all stakeholders – including urban managers and slum dwellers themselves
– and is a process undertaken across all scales – from the local to the metropolitan level. It is an inclusive, integrated,
‘city-wide approach’ which recognizes that slum and informal settlement dwellers must be part of, and integrated into
development projects, linking local development with the broader urban environment.
