Welcome to MyPSUP
Cities in developing countries are facing enormous challenges. Rapid urban growth has resulted in a significant increase in slums and one out of every three urbanites now lives in a slum. UN-HABITAT’s Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP) will improve the lives of slum dwellers in the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. This Programme is fundamental to achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
"to reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water by 2015"
"achieving significant improvement in the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers by 2020"
UN-HABITAT is working with the European Commission and the ACP Secretariat through the PSUP to mobilize partners and resources to reduce urban poverty.
