RESOURCE

This discussion paper examines key environmental challenges facing Afghan cities, including services such as transport, water, and sanitation; natural resource management; and climate change and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). It demonstrates that the urban environment is not an optional ‘add on’ but cuts across all aspects of how to plan and manage Afghanistan’s urbanisation process.
