Agra, Citywide Slum Upgrading Plan

Project Description

The Agra City Slum Upgrading Plan developed under the Rajiv Avas Yojana (RAY) and in partnership with the Agra Municipal Corporation (ANN) and District Urban Development Agency, is a comprehensive plan designed to make Agra a slum free city. It is based on a comprehensive geospatial mapping of all 410 slums in the city with land ownership and land use studies; a technical assessment of service gaps and housing footprint in each settlement; and a mapping of community structures and strengths. The Plan used a broad-based community engagement process to identify the development solutions. The integrative Plan is also structured to include ideas to support implementation – land and property titling reforms, proposals for strengthening local institutions, building partnerships for convergent action; etc. The Plan is linked to a GIS-based spatial information system with slum topographic and city infrastructure maps, to enable engineering designs for sewerage, drainage, water supply, road networking and last mile options. A financial estimate has also been prepared with a proposal for resource generation.
