The urban profiling [UP] is a rapid and action-oriented urban assessment of needs and capacity-building gaps at national and local levels. It is currently being implemented in over 20 countries in Africa and the Arab states. The UP uses a structured approach where priority interventions are agreed upon through a consultative process. The UP methodology consists of three phases: (1) a rapid participatory urban profiling at national and local levels focusing on governance, slums, gender, and environment, as well as proposed interventions; (2) detailed priority proposals; and (3) project implementation. The UP in Zambia encompasses profiles of Lusaka, Kitwe, and Livingstone, each published as a separate report. This is the Lusaka report and it constitutes a general background, a synthesis of the four themes – governance, slums, gender and HIV/AIDS, and environment – and priority project proposals.
