(The) Gambia: Kanifing Urban Profile

(The) Gambia: Kanifing Urban Profile
  • United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat). August 2011
  • The Kanifing Municipality is and increasingly continues to be the nerve center of The Gambia's urban sector. In addition to being the most densely populated township in the country, the municipality remains a highly multicultural society. It is the centre of attraction for both internal and external migrants, mainly due to its strategic realms and geographical location within The Gambia's territorial landscape. The urban profiling in Kanifing Municipal Council consists of an accelerated, action-oriented assessment of urban conditions, focusing on priority needs, capacity gaps, and existing institutional responses at local and national levels.
