COVID-19 Action




The Alliance has identified the situation and mobilized its partners to both respond to the COVID-19 situation once it hits informal settlements in Namibia in partnership with inhabitants in informal settlements; as well as to use this opportunity to accelerate participatory informal settlement upgrading nationwide. The Alliance has decided to form a COVID 19 Response Unit. The objective of the unit is to support the Alliance in the implementation of its response to COVID-19 in informal settlements in Namibia.

This website presents the action taken by the Alliance Secretariat and partners in light of the COVID-19 situation in informal settlements in Namibia. For latest updates follow the Alliance's Twitter and Facebook accounts. To reach the Alliance Secretariat, please contact
