|New from World Urban Campaign: Up for Slumdwellers
The World Urban Campaign has launched Up for Slumdwellers, a "global appeal campaign" for UN-Habitat's Participatory Slum Upgrading Program (PSUP). The campaign aims to change the response to slum upgrading around the world for the better and prevent more slums from developing. In a global climate in which one in eight people- nearly one billion people total- live in slums, and that number is expected to double by 2030, it is more imperative than ever to improve and invest in slum communities, and to recognize slumdwellers as equal members of society.
IHC Global, as a partner of WUC and as a long-standing advocate on behalf of urban slum dwellers, is especially pleased about this important initiative. It is our view that addressing these issues is central to achieving Global Goal 11, particularly its aim for inclusiveness.
