Stanikzai City Real Pictures
During the conflict of the past two and a half decades the social and economic infrastructure of Afghanistan was virtually destroyed. About six million Afghans left the country, mainly for Pakistan and Iran. Many of those who returned found their houses destroyed and their land under new ownership, having illegally changed hands many times. Most cities in Afghanistan now face acute housing shortages. In the informal settlements of Kabul two-thirds of houses are occupied by more than one family, and almost 9 of 10 families live in just one or two rooms. The housing shortage in urban areas has led to the expansion of informal settlements without access to the most basic city services.
In Kabul informal settlements provide shelter for 80 percent of the population, cover 69 percent of the residential land. Much of the informal housing in Kabul is built on government land. Projected population growth will add to the housing needs, Kabul’s population grew by 15 percent a year between 1999 and 2002 and is expected to continue to grow by 5 percent annually.
Countrywide, the demand for housing was estimated at 1.0 million units in 2006 and is projected to grow steadily, to reach 1.25 million in 2010 and more than 1.5 million in 2014. Kabul as a city has existed for more than 3,000 years. The most recent master plan for Kabul was approved in 1978 and was designed for a population of 700,000. Since that time Kabul Metropolitan Area has experienced a decade of civil disturbance when a large proportion of its scarce urban infrastructure was destroyed. Kabul is now faced with the difficult task of stretching its already inadequate urban infrastructure to provide urban services for a population of about three and a half million. This has resulted in a collapse of social services, a proliferation of squatter settlements, and a road system that cannot cope with traffic demands.
The World Bank estimates that at present, informal settlements represent almost 70% of all residential areas in Kabul and provide shelter to about 80% of its population. Over the next few years, the net annual increase in Kabul’s population is expected to be about two hundred thousand, increasing to more than three hundred thousand per year within a decade. Within 12 years, it is projected that Kabul’s population will exceed six and a half million. Kabul’s already stretched urban infrastructure could not cope with these increased pressures.
Right now some 4.5 million people live in Kabul and the average price for the development of the infrastructure for 100 square meters is about $2500.
