The Orangi Pilot Project-Research and Training Institute’s Mapping Process and its Repercussions

1. Preamble

The Orangi Pilot Project-Research and Training Institute (OPP-RTI) is an NGO working in the informal settlements of Orangi Town in Karachi, Pakistan and in other cities of the country.

This monograph deals with the process of development of expertise in the OPP-RTI and the communities it supports for mapping informal settlements and urban infrastructure. The development of this expertise and the documentation it has produced has had major repercussions on planning and operation and maintenance of infrastructure, community-NGO-local government partnerships and on state policies regarding IFI funded infrastructure projects and on government informal settlement upgrading programmes.
