Publication: Community Driven Development in Urban Upgrading
The Bank has been involved in a number of urban upgrading projects over the last three decades, which have demonstrated that quality of life in slums can be improved through realistic policies, investments and implementation processes. This note reviews community-driven development (CDD) in World Bank-assisted urban upgrading projects. The note identifies how CDD approaches have been applied in such projects. The review focuses on a small sample of urban upgrading projects that adopt CDD approaches, and draws from a combination of desk review and interviews with relevant Task Team Leaders. It briefly describes the projects, their CDD approaches, and concludes by highlighting emerging issues for future discussion.
