The Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), the European Commission, and UN-Habitat are holding the 4th International Tripartite Conference on “Slum Upgrading and Prevention in the Decade of Action”.

The event will take place within the framework of the global policy dialogue of the Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme (PSUP) implemented in 190 cities in 40 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries. 

The conference will bring global, national, city and community leaders together in policy dialogues, practitioners in working sessions, and financing partners in round-tables to take stock of progress made in transforming living conditions in informal settlements and slums in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries and around the world. It will seek to assess lessons learnt, recommendations, commitments and next steps needed to meet the scale and implement the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.

The panel will assess the setbacks and impacts of COVID-19, describing inequalities, poverty and the momentum to leverage the wake-up call of “building back better”. The contributions will be captured in a global publication on the ‘Status of Informal Settlements and Slums and Solutions for a Better Urban Future for All’.

Cities Alliance will be represented by Anaclaudia Rossbach, Regional Manager for Latin America, who will share strategic views about the future of slum upgrading.
