This proposal, and the activities included herein, represent the first time-slice of that multi-year effort, and include those activities which will lay the foundation for developing the level of understanding necessary to scale-up and, as importantly, bring together the various actors, through consensus building and advocacy work, which will play a leading role in facilitating and enabling the coming to scale.
Objectives
The objective of the activity is to develop an enabling strategy for the scaling-up of urban upgrading in Brazil through advocacy and consensus building and a deepened knowledge of the tools which are necessary to carry that strategy forth.
