This module is the eighth (8) out of 12 modules describing the methodology for slum upgrading developed through the PSUP. The module focusses on why community engagement is key to move from the definition of strategies at city level to area-based interventions at neighbourhood level. This module provides a methodology with the steps and standards for community sensitization, mobilization, organization and participation in slum upgrading in the framework of neighbourhood-based interventions.
Communities, as the primary beneficiaries, are amongst the most relevant stakeholders to engage across all phases for successful slum upgrading. Understanding how organised communities could contribute to the slum upgrading process is key.
