This BBL will present the findings of a Poverty and Social Impact Analysis (PSIA) that was carried out in the context of project preparation for a new urban upgrading project. The work drew on an exisitng experience of integrated urban upgrading in a low income neighborhood in the northeast of Brazil which has combined infrastructure and social investments, with community participation playing a major role in the design and implementation. This approach is now perceived to be highly successful in terms of its implementation and positive impact on living conditions, and will provide the basis for a major State-wide Program. The presentation will present the lessons learned from the experience, with implications for scaling up.
