Urban Partnerships for Poverty Reduction (UPPR) was established with the purpose toimprove the livelihoods and living conditions of three million urban poor and extremepoor people, especially women and girls. The first step in achieving this is accuratelylocating them. UPPR therefore has designed and is implementing a process of poorsettlement and vacant land mapping (SLM) in 29 of the 30 cities and towns in which theprogramme is operating. Using a participatory process that engages residents of poorsettlements, SLM locates, characterizes and derives the poverty status of all poorsettlements in the city.This report presents the findings of SLM in Narayanganj, the first town in which the SLMhas been completed. The report can be used by national-, town-, ward- and communitylevelstakeholders and development partners.National-level policy-makers can improve their understanding of the scale and nature ofurban poverty to design informed policies to benefit the urban.Town-level decision-makers as well as development partners can use the findings of thisreport to accurately direct resources for infrastructure and services to the most criticalwards and settlements as well as better quantify the impact of developments that wouldrequire relocation of households.Ward councillors and community leaders can use this report as a tool to advocate forimproved infrastructure and services for their constituencies.Academics can improve their understanding of the spatial distribution of characteristicsurban poverty and use the maps and database to construct sample frames for theirresearch.As this report is the first in a series that will cover the SLM results in each UPPR town,we would like to encourage readers to share constructive comments that can improvethe quality of our future reports.
