Global mapping of civil society collaborations and initiatives to face COVID-19 in self-built neighbourhoods.
DECALOGUE FOR PARTICIPATORY SLUM UPGRADING
Roadmap for Latin America and the Caribbean
We have the tools, the practices, the expertise and the conviction. Now we need to collectively imagine and create a common narrative to achieve joint action.
Join the campaign and let's work for a transformation at scale!
The Decalogue arises from the alliance between civil society organizations, social movements, universities, research centers, international and regional organizations and networks that have come together within the framework of the "Synergies for Solidarity" initiative to collectively imagine a more just post-pandemic future, building a global network of collaboration and empathy.
The partner organizations defend that the development of a renewed and participatory slum upgrading program is fundamental to respond to immediate needs and also to contribute to a long-term post-pandemic recovery based on the well-being of the population, the realization of their rights and respect for the environment.
The ten guidelines presented arise from a collective process of analysis and synthesis of different documents and strategies framed in the response to COVID-19, added to the concrete knowledge generated by the inhabitants and different actors involved in the historical process of development of slum upgrading projects in Latin America and the Caribbean.
What elements do we need for a slum upgrading programme
