Bangladesh - Pro Poor Slums Intergration Project : Environmental Management Framework (EMF) (Inglês)

The Pro-Poor Slums Integration Project (PPSIP) has been initiated by the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) with financial support from the World Bank to improve the quality of life and overall living condition of the poor community living in the urban slums. National Housing Authority (NHA) under the Ministry of Housing and Public Works (MoHPW) will lead in planning and implementing the PPSIP. Poverty alleviation has engendered a strong emphasis for the PPSIP on the basis that a higher standard of living will be achieved by enhancing security of tenure, improving infrastructure, and facilitating access to credit. Urban poverty is the most significant predictor of environmental health risks. In Bangladesh, out of 40 million people living in urban areas, around 62 percent of urban populations are living in informal settlement or slum. This segment of the population is deprived of physical assets, political influence, basic services and access to social capital. It is realized that global efforts to improve living conditions of slum dwellers, as enshrined in the Millennium Development Goals would not be achievable unless the slum dwellers are upgraded as communities with secure livelihood and the primary needs. Thus, the focus of the PPSIP is not limited to a housing project only; rather implement a sustainable solution enhancing the community's self-assurance, livelihood sustainability, and resilience.
