ONGOING OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES
CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC
Support to the Formulation of a National Housing Strategy and Action Plan
Total cost $118,327

Partners
Ministry of Housing and Urbanization and Public Buildings

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat)

Background and objectives
Following Habitat II, the Government requested support from UNDP and UN-Habitat to formulate a national action plan on housing. The project seeks to assist the Government in the formulation of this strategy and action plan.

Activities
The project's activities started in December 1999 with an assessment of the national urban shelter situation. Four in-depth studies, dealing with local building materials, housing finance mechanisms, land management and regional planning are being undertaken in order to formulate a national strategy and action plan.

Results
A national forum involving key actors took place in October during celebration of World Habitat Day to discuss and endorse strategy and a national action plan. The forum recommended that the Government adopt the new strategy and action plan and organize a donor round table to mobilize financial resources for implementation.
