Analyzing the Impact of JNNURM Funded Slum Improvement Projects on Children Across India

ACE evaluated the impact of Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) funded slum redevelopment projects on the lives of children in six cities in India. The objective was to explore the possibility of using JNNURM funded initiatives to improve the living conditions and well-being of children and young people living in slums.

The research involved doing in-depth case studies of eight slum development projects in five different states, and understanding the perceptions and perspectives of children and families, community leaders, local governments, experts and other stakeholders involved with these projects. The data was analyzed using a hybrid rights based approach underpinned by the protection-provisions-participation framework of child rights and the housing rights framework. Bernard van Leer Foundation supported this research.

The detailed report can be obtained from the ACE Delhi office for a small donation to offset on-demand printing costs and to further future research on child-centered affordable housing.
