What We Do

Livelihoods and Poverty Alleviation


Livelihoods and Poverty Alleviation

Cities have always been a centre of opportunity for people. Thereby, making migration synonymous to livelihooods and brisk development. This development however, is not always planned. It is a challenge for cities to evolve with the increased rate of migration and need of resources. To bridge this gap, we UMC integrates an urban poor focus across all of its research, programs and projects to improve outcomes and bring equality by supporting local governments to ensure equity in service delivery to urban poor settlements.
