Mogadishu Urban Analysis
This publication is the result of the project ‘Support to Regional Benadir Administration’s Central Department of Urban Planning’ implemented in technical cooperation between the UN-Habitat Somalia Programme and the Mogadishu Department of Urban Planning (DUP). The data contained in the urban analysis was collected during GPS surveys by UN-Habitat Somalia during 2010-2012 and by the Mogadishu Department of Urban Planning (DUP) during 2013.
The spatial analysis provides general information and helps to develop a basic spatial understanding of the city of Mogadishu, including its main characteristics and composition. Data contained on those maps is not warranted to be error free and should not be used for planning purpose. The maps are a basic tool for strategic urban planning and require further detailed sectoral analysis.
