The central government is improving social and urban integration of informal settlements faster than ever. Through a collaborative approach, we invited social organizations to design and conduct the 1st National survey of slums. With a mobile app and training, the inhabitants of the neighborhoods help in the process. Then, the families received a Certificate that allows them to request public services.
