Building Inclusive Cities: Highlights from the Inclusive Cities Project

This booklet draws upon lessons learned during the Inclusive Cities Project, which ran from 2009-2015. The Inclusive Cities Project brought together membership-based organizations (MBOs) of the working poor, regional/ global alliances of MBOs, and technical support organizations to strengthen MBOs in organizing, policy analysis, and advocacy so that urban informal workers had the tools necessary to make themselves heard in urban planning processes.

This booklet contains case studies and profiles that highlight successful interventions by informal worker organizations and include strategies used to achieve these positive outcomes, all of which can be used as resources for other organizations seeking to support the working poor in the urban informal economy.
