There are two poor people’ s federations active in Nepal: the National Federation of Squatter Communities and the National Federation of Women’s Savings Collectives. The two federations have worked together – and with a growing list of local government and NGO partners – to establish the Kathmandu Urban Poor Support Fund and implement the first community-driven and municipal-supported housing relocation project. Both federations are currently supported by the Indian SDI Alliance.
