UN-Habitat has implemented Emergency Flood Response in Khartoum for Vulnerable Communities as part of its 2003-2016 CPD. The project was developed as a response to emergency situations that resulted from heavy rainfall and flooding in 2013 which led to tremendous losses and social disruption. The overall goal was to strengthen government and community capacities to conduct emergency construction of public facilities and necessary infrastructure through the adaptation and implementation of flood resilient urban planning and building techniques. Over 170 thousand persons benefited from the project interventions in terms of accessibility, protection against flood, access to basic services and capacity building. Gender aspects were considered in planning and implementing improved accessibility mechanisms for facilities. Environmentally friendly construction technology was introduced, applied and disseminated among affected communities.
