Nairobi – Saba
Minister of Public Works and Roads, Eng. Salem Al-Hareezy, reviewed the challenges facing Yemen in the field of urban housing, which have been exacerbated by the crises the country is going through due to the economic deterioration and the collapse of service institutions, due to the war sparked by the Houthi militia.
This came during his speech delivered today at the meetings of the second session of the United Nations Assembly for Human Settlements, held in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, from 5 to 9 June. Minister Al-Hareezy said, "The war has caused the displacement of thousands of citizens, most of them women and children, from their homes, and they are now living in very difficult conditions at the level of housing, health and food security.
The war has also caused damage and destruction to government institutions, infrastructure and services, especially electricity, water, the road network, and citizens' homes."
. The Minister of Works touched on government efforts to achieve comprehensive development goals, despite the difficult economic conditions, stressing the importance of participating in this session to gain expertise and benefit from countries' experiences in the field of capacity building and urban infrastructure development.
