Gangtok, Project Management Unit for RAY

Project Description

CURE set up a Project Management Unit in the Urban Development and Housing Department, Sikkim under the Rajiv Avas Yojna (RAY). CURE built a contextually relevant framework for slum development in the State and city of Gangtok. CURE also mapped city slums and prepared a GIS based MIS for Gangtok. A slum data base was developed from household surveys for planning interventions. Community consultations at the slum and ward level helped identify solutions specific to particular slums. De-engineering solutions were planned to integrate slums within the city and local institutional capacity was strengthened to implement slum development at scale.
