On behalf of the USF Board of Directors, It is my pleasure to present to you this report summarising the activities that USF undertook in 2008.
We have carried out several interventions in the countries where we have started to schedule action plans. We have also contacted new countries which in return have approached USF to seek our cooperation.
Our main area of intervention involves informal districts, commonly called “slums”. We have based our approach on the identification of problems and the raising of awareness at the earliest stages concerning urban sustainable development.
We have concurrently developed our network of competences and our reflexions by organising debates and conferences as part of our workshops as well as a part of the activities of the International UCER Club (to Urbanise and Construct Ethically and Responsibly).
We have elaborated studies, documents and worksheets to introduce environment-friendly construction and development methods. We have also coordinated Open House Days and took part in international fairs and meetings based on Sustainable Development.
Thanks to the trust and support of our partners and the mobilisation of our members, supporters and volunteers, our NGO has become a front-rank organisation specialised in the field of town planning and urban sustainable development.
For more information about our activities, please download the Report 2008.
