Malawi: National Urban Profile
The Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP) is an accelerated and action-oriented urban assessment of needs and capacity-building gaps at national and local levels. It is currently being implemented in over 30 countries in Africa, Caribbean, and Pacific Region. PSUP uses a structured approach where priority interventions are agreed upon through consultative processes.
The PSUP methodology consists of three phases:
(1) A rapid participatory urban profiling, at national and local levels, focusing on Governance, Local Economic Development, Environment, Land, Shelter and Slums, Gender and HIV/AIDS, and Basic Urban Services and proposed interventions.
(2) Detailed priority proposals.
(3) Project implementation.
PSUP in Malawi encompasses a national profile, as well as profiles for Blantyre, Lilongwe, Mzuzu and Zomba Cities, each published as a separate report.
This report constitutes a general background, a synthesis of the seven themes: Governance and Financial Management, Local Economic Development, Environment, Land, Shelter and Slums, Gender and HIV/AIDS, and Basic Urban Services; and priority project proposals.
