Aga Khan Agency for Habitat

The Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH)’s goal is that people live in safe, sustainable and resilient habitats with the opportunity to thrive, whether in a remote mountain village, town or densely populated urban centre. It works with communities to help them prepare for and respond to natural disasters and the effects of climate change. AKAH also works to expand access to services and opportunity for people to improve their lives. AKAH helps communities prepare for the worst; provides immediate relief after disaster strikes; and helps build back better – and greener – while planning for a better future. AKAH currently operates in Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Syria and Tajikistan. AKAH works with over 2 000 mountain communities empowering them with data, world-class planning and best practices in disaster risk reduction and safe, sustainable housing and critical infrastructure to build a better future.
