Housing and Infrastructure
This programme has been a core PPT programme since its establishment in 1993. It is a large and complex programme with many constituent sub-programmes and project typologies which deliver various forms of housing and infrastructure to disadvantaged communities at scale. Where funding and other conditions permit, PPT at the same time promotes non-infrastructural development (e.g. livelihoods, economic development, fruit trees) in order to enable more integrated and sustainable development.
