Urban Poor Transform slums

The lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Asian cities have been transformed thanks to an innovative project that enables the urban poor to improve their living conditions in partnership with city governments.

The successes of the Asian Coalition for Community Action (ACCA) programme, which the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights is implementing in 150 cities in 15 Asian countries. Across Asia, ACCA’s investment of US$2.3 million has unlocked US$35.6 million worth of government land for poor people’s housing.
