Urban Program

Strengthening Systems Through Collective Action

In Pune City, the 3D Program is leveraging collective action platforms to strengthen women’s livelihoods, improve their access to social programs and entitlements across sectors and increase their public and occupational safety. The Program is doing this through convergent action by engaging the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), the waste pickers trade union Kagad Kach Patra Kashtakari Panchayat (KKPKP), the waste pickers cooperative SWaCH, the Centre for Environment Education and a private sector philanthropist.
