Joint Programme Component 4: Sustainable Urbanization

JP Outcome 4.1: Urban actors having a better understanding of critical urban issues affecting slum dwellers and urban poor in cities including urban issues relating to climate change (as a contribution to achieving MDG7D)

Purpose: Programme Vision to “build capacity to provide an effective and sustained improvement in urban poor living conditions, including urban issues relating to climate change (as a contribution to achieving MDG7D)”. This project under JPC-4 aims at improving the state of service delivery and planning support system in informal settlements in three secondary cities. This will directly contribute to the poverty alleviation goal of the country and enhance the capacity of municipal authorities to better manage the areas that accommodate deprived population that accounts for half of its population (based on national average).

Objective 1: To improve lives and living conditions of the urban poor population in selected secondary cities of Pakistan through the collection of data, preparation of participatory urban plans, reinforcement of municipality capacities and implementation of demonstrative projects reducing urban poor vulnerability.

Output 1: Baseline data on critical urban issues produced for each of the 8 targeted cities, including: (a) Data segregated by sex and age on social, economic and environmental issues collected and analyzed; (b) Eight urban profiles produced and discussed with citizens and stakeholders and; (c) Eight urban observatories settled, equipped and staff trained.

This JPC would adopt a rights-based approach while being aligned directly with the National Environment Policy, National Perspective Plans, Vision 2030, National MDGs targets, the Medium Term Development Framework, United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers, national targeted programmes and provincial and district level plans and programmes to preserve natural resources sustainably.

The project will also contribute towards the National Housing Policy by articulating ways of improving the supply of housing (land, services and shelter) for the poor and vulnerable by (i) making relevant information available in time and in content suitable for the purpose, and (ii) demonstrating public-private-community partnership in managing urban growth in Pakistan. Further, the project objectives are in line with that of National Environmental Policy, National Conservation Strategy, National Transport Policy and others, and will help Pakistan meets its obligation towards attainment of goals under MDG. As significant numbers of refugees live in urban places, this project will also directly help them to assimilate in the larger society through improved access to services.
