The Informal Urban Communities Initiative | IUCI: The IUCI is a design activism, research and education program based in Lomas de Zapallal (LdZ), an informal urban settlement (slum) in northern Lima, Peru. It focuses on the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of community-driven interventions in the built environment and, in response to priorities articulated by community members, places particular emphasis on the integrated, interdisciplinary design of public green space. The IUCI aims to improve human and environmental health and well-being in LdZ, to build the capacity of designers and other professionals to work effectively with poor urban communities and to gather evidence that informs best practices in these contexts.
