INDIA'S URBAN POOR
With the increase in urbanisation in India, the intergenerational deprivation, vulnerability, exclusion, and insecurity of the urban poor is on the rise – and will worsen by 2030.
The urban poor are devoid of civic amenities such as water, sanitation, electricity, and open spaces
They lack access to healthcare, education and livelihood opportunities
They struggle to survive under the constant threat of insecure livelihoods
The result? They are trapped in a vicious cycle of marginalisation.
