Welcome to Hope for Slums

The solutions presented in this platform demonstrate that the real estate market in cities of developing countries would be sufficient to support a considerable amount of affordable housing to meet the needs of slum residents, without displacing them and without altering the socio-economic fabric of the slum, including informal economic activities, small retails and temporary stalls.

Hope for Slums is designed to address sustainable urban development strategies and slum upgrading and prevention at local, national and regional as well as global levels and is suitable to be embedded in the well consolidated Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP).
