Under development



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.

The PSUP addresses the living conditions of millions of slum dwellers worldwide. It focuses on the challenges in slums and informal settlements and works in close cooperation with the communities based on partnership.

The UN-Habitat’s programme is at forefront, working on COVID-19 pandemic prevention in slums and informal settlements.



This course will be available soon.

This module is the third (3) out of 12 modules describing the methodology for slum upgrading developed through the PSUP. This module focuses on the importance of profiling, data collection and defining indicators to set baselines, monitor implementation and for data-based decision making. Furthermore, the module provides the tools and methodology to conduct national and city profiles and the slum situation analysis at city level.
