Purpose of Urban Slum Map

This one-stop data portal will equip users with key demographic data about some of Bangladesh’s urban slums. It is expected that the data contained here will be used as a planning tool to determine where relief is needed and where it has been distributed. The objective is to enable individuals and organisations working to distribute relief to be able to plan more effectively so that they reach the people in the most need, reduce duplication and to maximise the reach of our collective efforts.

The portal contains information for only XXX slums within 12 city corporations and 8 municipalities in Bangladesh. This is not a comprehensive list and there may be more slums outside those listed in this portal.
