Abstract: The objective of the presentation is to introduce the participants to community based infrastructure procurement strategies for low-income urban communities. The presentation provides an overview of the investigation and analysis of the mechanisms, both conventional and unconventional, government and nongovernment, which have been adopted in efforts to deliver improved services to the urban poor. These mechanisms are the agreements, procedures, and contracts whereby things actually get done. Such mechanisms also include community-partnered procurement (CPP), a part of which is community contracts. Cases from Asia and Africa have shown how community groups have taken a wide range of roles, which can be compared to clients, contractors and supervisors in the formal sector. Discussions will focus on how to assimilate and institutionalise good practices.
