Tripartite Partnership

PSUP is a strong tool to make a change in slum dwellers’ lives, because it has strong partners! It is the outcome of a tripartite partnership initiated by the Secretariat of the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, financed by the European Commission and implemented by UN-Habitat. Due to this partnership, 169 cities worldwide have been mobilized to invest in strategic slum upgrading activities for sustainable urbanization since 2008, when the programme was launched.

The programme’s purpose is to strengthen the capacity of local, regional, national, international and transnational institutions and key stakeholders in slum improvement and prevention through good governance, technical assistance and pilot projects. It also contributes, where needed, to developing policies and carrying out institutional, legislative, financial, normative and implementation frameworks.
