Tell Me About Participatory Slum Upgrading Program:
The purpose of the Call is to solicit proposals from interested Academia and research groups to support the Participatory Slum Upgrading Program in Namibia in contribution to the Sustainable Development Goal 11 for Cities, Target 1 “By 2030, ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade slums”.
Applicant organizations should wish to participate in UN-Habitat operation and be able to contribute complementary resources (human resources, knowledge, funds, in-kind contributions, supplies and/or equipment) to achieving the common objectives of the project and subsequently agreed in an Agreement of Cooperation.
This call for proposals is addressing organizations that are specialized in participatory data collection in informal settlements, as well as in formulating strategies for slum upgrading and urban integration at local and national level.
The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) together with the European Commission (EC), and the Secretariat of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) entered a tripartite partnership to address the challenge of slums in the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Countries through the launch of the Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP) in 2008. The PSUP is funded by the European Commission (EC) and slum upgrading projects are implemented trough the PSUP and with co-financing contributions from the ACP partner governments. The PSUP implements strategies, policies and projects to address the widespread and chronic urban poverty in slums and informal settlements, in contribution to the Sustainable Development Goal 11 for Cities, Target 1 “By 2030, ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade slums”.
The PSUP has two specific objectives:
- Strengthen global partnerships and policy dialogue for participatory slum upgrading and prevention in all ACP countries
- Improve knowledge and capacities of ACP stakeholders for participatory slum upgrading and prevention and slum dwellers living conditions
Its primary focus is to integrate slums communities into the urban fabric by addressing tenure security, increasing access to land and basic services, improving infrastructure and mobility and strengthening economic links.
