CAIRO - 11 October 2018: Leilani Farha, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing, said Egypt has taken big strides to solve its urgent humanitarian problems.

In a press release on Thursday, she said Egypt is working seriously to accomplish the Sustainable Development Goal no 11, referring to President Abdel Fattah El Sisi's commitment to the one million housing units project as well as the development of slum areas.

Farha was recently on an official visit to Egypt. At the end of her visit, she highlighted the government's achievements in the social housing file.

Farha's final report on her visit to Egypt will be handed over to the Human Rights Council in Geneva in March 2019.
