We have conducted hazard, vulnerability and risk assessments for settlements covering nearly three million people.



We have built safe water and sanitation systems for more than 600,000 people.



We have helped communities build 5,000 natural-hazard-resilient hospitals, schools and community centres.

As we all know, natural disasters are increasing in both frequency and severity because of climate change. They have become more devastating than in the past. Both in mountainous and coastal areas, effects are especially strong. ...The Aga Khan Agency for Habitat was created specifically to find ways to deal with these increasing threats. Its mission is to find innovative ways to address the threat of natural disaster and work to make communities resilient, building on the decades of experience of various AKDN agencies.
