Rank this case study
 
The problem based Slum networking approach of Vadodra Municipal Corporation has won the Dubai International Award for the Best Practice in 2006 for providing basic facilities and raising the living standard of the slum dwellers in the area.

The Slum Networking project ensured access of slum dwellers to basic facilities such as individual toilet, concrete roads, water and sanitation. This project is a result of collaborative effort of slum dwellers, industry and NGOs to revitalize slum areas through provision of Solid Waste Management service, strengthening of sewage network, extension of city storm water drains to reach slum concentration and low lying areas, improvement of water supply pressures around slum localities, plantation, and improving the city roads on the periphery of the slums. In addition, various neighborhood groups, women�s groups and youth groups were given credit facilities and were trained in income generating activities so that they could participate actively as decision makers rather than just recipients of services.
