Read the Joint Communique Against Forced Evictions Affecting the Urban Poor. 

Last week the West Africa Regional Hub released a joint communique addressing the recent spate of forced evictions in Sierra Leone, Ghana, and Nigeria. The communique condemns the use of counter-productive demolitions and forced evictions against the urban poor and calls on governments, development partners, and regional organisations to join hands with organised communities of the urban poor to take concrete measures to prevent these practices. Read the communique here and keep an eye out for more news from last week’s West Africa Regional Hub meeting in Ghana.
