    Overview

    The Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme is a laudable effort to mobilize partners and resources in order to address urban poverty reduction. The Municipality of Beau Bassin-Rose Hill has seized the opportunity to engage itself in this multi-stakeholder process. The towns Beau Bassin and Rose Hill are twin towns in one. Rose Hill is more urbanized than Beau Bassin.

    The twin towns are situated in the western part of Mauritius, in the lower part of the inland district of Plaines Wilhems. Beau Bassin-Rose Hill was established in 1896, and the town council was made a municipal council at independence on 12 March 1968. The township covers an area of about 20.2 square kilometers. The residents of the town total about 110,000. The town has evolved as a residential area with a high density of businesses; it remains an attractive place to live and work. However, it has lost ground to other towns, and a new vision is now required for Beau Bassin-Rose Hill.
