The Kingdom of Morocco is awarded for delivering one of the world's most successful and comprehensive slum reduction and improvement programmes. In a concept already being replicated in Egypt and Tunisia, the Moroccan programme widely considered the best of its kind in Africa, is spearheading Morocco's Cities without Slums drive. The Government had set a target in 2004 of humanely clearing the slums in 85 cities by the year 2012. Working with the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and its agency Al Omrane, in the past decade it has improved or eliminated 45.8 percent of the country's slums which are home to 1.6 million people. The cost of the programme has so far come to 25 billion dirhams (USD 2.86 billion) of which the Government has allocated 10 billion dirharms (USD 1.1 billion).
