Partner Communities: The IUCI works in close collaboration with informal urban communities to address challenges ranging from a lack of public green space, to  water insecurity. Since 2010 we have worked with community members from Lomas de Zapallal in Lima Peru. More recently we have partnered with community members in Claverito, Iquitos, Peru and Pongro Senchey, Phnom Penh Cambodia. This coming year we also plan to initiate our first community-based project in Kathmandu, Nepal
