Water for African Cities Programme Phase II

The Water for African Cities Programme is part of the wider efforts of UN-HABITAT to contribute towards meeting the Millennium Development Goal targets of halving the number of people without access to safe water and sanitation by 2015. This brochure has been prepared in order to highlight some of the successes that the programme has achieved and to share the lessons and challenges encountered thus far in implementing the programme. UN-HABITAT will continue with its efforts to improve the living environment in urban areas through employing such measures so as to improve basic urban services in an environmen-tally friendly manner, and to contribute to the global efforts towards mitigating the effects of climate change.
