UN-Habitat focuses on the biggest deprivations for slum communities: the lack of adequate and safe housing conditions, clean water supply, sanitation and secure land tenure. We concentrate on waste management, gender equality and human rights, climate resilience and participation of the local communities in the slum upgrading process.
“Our parishioners used to meet under trees. Today, the members of the community committee meet in the community centre, which even has a computer room."
