Two Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) were developed by CURE in partnership with the Raipur Municipal Corporation, with the financial support of GIZ(Deutsche Gesellschaft for Internationale Zusammenarbeit) and EAWAG, for the in situ upgrading of slums in Raipur, Chattisgarh. The two DPRs were aimed at demonstrating two different models of slum upgrading – networking to city systems for inner city settlements and decentralized-de-engineered infrastructure for peri-urban areas. Using a participatory community process and data generated through household surveys, CURE finalized the plans and technical designs for the two sites. A housing footprint analysis was used for designing housing that could be built incrementally by families, with access to housing micro finance. Rental housing was also proposed within the area for renter households to prevent their displacement and livelihood disruption. The two DPRs were approved by Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation under RAY for implementation.
