The guidelines categorise informal settlements as either A (imminent formalization), B1 (interim basic services  with  eventual formalization when resouces and timing permit), B2 (emergency basic services – with eventual relocation when time and resouces permit) and C (imminent relocation where the site is not viable and appropriate for long term upgrading and there is an urgent need for relocation due to high threat to the health or safety of the setttlement’s residents).

The informal settlement upgrading toolkits can be downloaded from the knowledge resources section of the PPT website
