The Urban and Development Resource Centre (UDRC) is a non-profit organisation that for over 20 years has worked in two of India’s eastern States (Odisha and West Bengal) alongside grassroots organisations of Mahila Milan (Women’s savings collectives) and the Slum Dwellers Federation.

    UDRC focuses on empowering women, children and youth in informal settlements, to stop forced evictions and improve access to land, sanitation, water, electricity, housing, finance and livelihoods.

    Our long-term vision is to create systemic change by creating a platform and a process based strategy by which communities themselves set the agenda for habitat improvement.
