dc.description.abstract Underserved Settlements (USSs), as opposed to slums, refer to urban settlements in Colombo and suburbs that are situated on unauthorized land areas, characterized most often by high densities of populations (four times the average of the city of Colombo), and situated on land that is state or privately owned and not owned by residents. A detailed baseline socio-economic survey of residents was completed. Improved sanitation and land tenure security are key components of the project. Community ‘ownership’ of the project, and obtaining adequate participation in the urban/USS setting, given lifestyles and social dynamics, is an important issue for sustainability of such initiatives. en
