In March and April 2012 I was in charge of editing raw urban profiles drafted in Francophone Africa and Haiti country offices and putting the text in the UN-Habitat profiling format.
Please find a sample of my work here.
PSUP is an initiative of the ACP Secretariat, funded by the European Commission and implemented by UN-Habitat. The PSUP consists of three phases: (1) urban profiling; (2) participatory action planning and programme document formulation; and (3) participatory pilot project implementation. There are currently 24 countries in Africa who have joined the programme at different phases: 8 countries in Phase 1, 18 countries in Phase 2 and 8 countries in Phase 3.
The goal of PSUP is to positively contribute to MDG 7C and 7D, to halve by 2015 the proportion of people without access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation, and to significantly improve the lives of 100 million slum-dwellers by 2020.
PSUP has catalysed growing action and investment in initiatives supporting slum improvement and prevention in 40 countries and over 150 cities across Africa, Caribbean and Pacific States through the Participatory Slum Upgrading Programme. This is being achieved through the partnerships UN-Habitat has developed with global Habitat Agenda partners such as Cities Alliance, the World Bank Institute, GIZ, as well as bi-lateral development partners, national and local Governments, NGOs and CBOs.
