UN-Habitat holds a collaborative planning session on the future of Haiti suburb

Port-au-Prince, 19 November 2015 – UN-Habitat this week held the first of a series of charrettes – an intensive collaborative planning session involving citizens and other stakeholders – to discuss the current situation and the future vision for the suburb of Cannan.

Located on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince, Cannan experienced a surge in its population following the 2010 earthquake. The neighbourhood, which developed informally without sufficient infrastructure, now hosts a population of 200,000.
