Building partnerships between urban poor communities and local governments
This paper explores the key triggers of strong working relations between communities of the urban poor and local governments. It does so by examining these relations before and after the National Slum Dwellers Federation of Uganda (NSDFU) began organising communities in Jinja, and by analysing the strategies of the federation and council for working together. It explores the vision of the federation and council for the development of the municipality. Following the examination of the work to date it identifies the key triggers of the strengthening relations and makes recommendations to the future process in Jinja and for urban poor communities more generally.
