Unprecedented circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic have presented huge challenges to a third of the global urban population living in slums around the world. This course aims at supporting policymakers and urban practitioners to better respond to the challenge of slums, especially in a time of global pandemics. The course focuses on the conceptual and operational aspects of designing, implementing and sustaining a slum upgrading intervention while underscoring the main policy and programmatic approaches at a city level for scaling up upgrading and better planning for future growth. Specifically, at the end of the course, participants will be able to:

• Understand urban slums, their underlying social, economic, and spatial characteristic, how they emerge and consolidate, and their impacts on local communities and the city as a whole;
• Analyze the evolution of policy approaches to addressing urban slums under different contexts, what worked, what did not work, and why; and
• Review and apply key operational principles and instruments for designing an upgrading intervention, including planning, finance, infrastructure, land tenure, housing, social inclusion, and sustainability.
