Where we work
We currently work in urban areas in 47 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. In some countries, such as Liberia and Sierra Leone, we are responding to emergencies by providing essential services such as water and sanitation. In others, such as Lebanon and Jordan, we are working with local and national governments to address the challenges of urban displacement.
In countries that have been affected by natural disasters, such as the Philippines, we are contributing towards reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts. In non-emergency situations, we are addressing long-term development challenges related to habitat and livelihoods. Habitat covers a range of issues, including housing, land tenure, essential services, disaster risk reduction, ending violence against women, public spaces, and infrastructure planning, while our livelihoods work focuses on social protection as well as the informal economy, where the majority of the urban poor make a
living as street traders, domestic workers, waste pickers, and other precarious and low-paid jobs.
