Description

The publication “Promoting Safety and Violence Prevention Through Informal Settlement Upgrading” is a result of extensive research undertaken through the Mainstreaming Urban Safety and Inclusion in Urban Upgrading project, Citylab sessions and insights from a pilot short course and is a result of a partnership between the African Centre for Cities (ACC), ISANDLA Institute, the Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading (VPUU) and the GIZ Inclusive Violence and Crime Prevention Programme (VCP) supported by the German Development Cooperation. It summarises and structures important learnings from different informal settlement upgrading interventions as well as further insights from practitioners and researchers. In this booklet, seven key principles are defined and elaborated, which provide assistance in planning and implementing integrated upgrading interventions for more liveable and safer communities. As an essential lesson, the booklet concludes that community safety needs to be considered as a priority when organizing upgrading processes.
