The country's intention was expressed Wednesday in New York by Minister of Territorial Planning and Housing, Ana Paula de Carvalho.

Speaking to UN News, Ana Paula, who is attending the forum on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), said the move is meant to protect the former combatants and motherland veteran’s widows, as well as low-income young people.

The government also intends to create housing conditions for populations and secure modern infrastructures in Angolan cities, under the New Urban Agenda - the official stressed.

The minister also expressed the government intention to launch spatial planning and programme to ensure the creation of the new infrastructures and construction standards.

On the other hand, she clarified that the Angolan authorities are developing the housing area to halt the exodus, as happened during the armed conflict in the country.

The minister spoke of the attempt to approach the experience of the Portuguese-speaking community in the issue.

To this purpose, she said, members from her Ministry and that of Territory Administration and State Reform recently visited Cabo Verde to evaluate the implementation of housing policies in that country, in order to adapt Angola to what is positive.
