WATER QUALITY TESTING: FINDINGS FROM UPPRs OUTCOME STUDY
A recent water quality testing study of 1,248 randomly selected tubewells found that 99.7 per cent were arsenic free if measured against the level set by the Government of Bangladesh. The tubewells were installed by the communities in 21 towns with UPPR's support. Click on the photo for more information.
2013 ANNUAL REPORT: REVIEWING PROGRESS & PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
This report reflects what our project has achieved in reducing urban poverty since 2008. 2013 was a particularly good year with respect to working with communities and local Government partners for long-lasting results. We hope this report will stimulate debate over the most effective way to move forward in Bangladesh post-2015.
WE TELL: UNDERSTANDING URBAN POVERTY
UPPR launched the ‘We Tell’ photo project, a special initiative to highlight the experiences of girls and women in the slums of Bangladesh. We Tell gives voice to girls and women to tell the story of their lives and those of their communities through photography.
A RIGHT TO A TOILET: A RIGHT TO BE SAFE, CLEAN AND HEALTHY
More than one third of the urban population in Bangladesh doesn’t have access to improved sanitation. By empowering communities to identify the need to increase their access to hygienic latrines and contracting by themselves the works, UPPR is trying to help the Government to tackle this problem in a sustainable way.
