Govt implements 34 projects to provide housing facilities for all

DHAKA: The National Housing Authority (NHA) is
implementing 34 projects across the country to ensure housing facilities for all to keep up with the rapid urbanization.

“We are implementing 34 projects. Of the total, 17 projects are for
developing plots while 17 are for constructing flats,” Supervising
Engineering of development and coordination division of NHA AQM Shahjalaal Majumdar told BSS today.

With increased population growth, rapid urbanization is taking place to meet the growing demand of people, he said the National Housing Authority is expanding its projects up to upazila level as people are moving to upazila and district level towns.

People are getting settled in urban areas due to various reasons including displacement caused by river bank erosion, livelihood related issue and the need for modern lifestyle, he said, adding all these reasons increased the demand of housing for people.

Under the 17 projects, 2,780 plots will be allocated and 6,592 flats will be handed over to the people after completing construction.

The plot development and flat construction are being implemented in 18 districts —

Dhaka, Chittagong, Rajshahi, Barisal, Noakhali, Dinajpur, Gopalganj,
Jessore, Jhenaidah, Kushtia, Thakurgaon, Habiganj, Sunamganj, Bogra and Cox’s Bazar.

The NHA sources said the government has taken massive initiative to ensure adequate accommodation facilities for all levels of people including people of low-income group and slum dwellers to make the city livable.

Rapid urbanization has brought enormous challenges, including
growing numbers of slum dwellers, increased air pollution, inadequate basic services and infrastructure, and unplanned urban sprawl, which also make cities more vulnerable to disasters. Better urban planning and management are needed to make the world’s urban spaces more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Currently, about 30 percent people live in urban areas in the country. If the present trend continues, the rate of urban people will increase to 55 percent in 2051.

ভেঙে পড়ছে গ্রিসের অর্থনীতি। দুই মেয়াদে ক্ষমতায় এসেও সিপ্রাস সরকার চিত্রটা পাল্টাতে পারেনি। দিন দিন বাড়ছে বেকারত্ব। গোটা দেশটার আর্থ-সামাজিক…
