Urban Impact – Issue 02
On this edition of Urban Impact, you will read about how UN-Habitat is supporting access to clean water for citizens of Hargeisa (Somaliland), Somalia, through the establishment of a new water system as well as constructing a new water supply and storm drainage system for the citizens of Kanyama, the largest informal settlement in Zambia. Our efforts in post-conflict and disaster recovery continue. In Sri Lanka we continued to provide technical support for the construction of pre-school facilities.
Building these facilities has been key to restoring and re-uniting families affected by years of civil conflict. In Haiti, our teams have developed a long-term strategic plan for the northern area of metropolitan Port-au-Prince in our efforts to restore stability following the terrible earthquake in 2010.
