Abstract

This study aims at analyzing the standard of living of the Balbala residents in Djibouti, whose will benefit from an integrated urban development project (PDUI). The objective of the PDUI project is to improve standard of living of 30,000 people in three districts of Balbala, by developing basic infrastructure, community facilities and social programs. To assess the impact of this project, a baseline survey was conducted in 2010 to measure its standard of living before the project started. This representative survey focuses on four areas, where impact is expected: employment, housing conditions, health and safety. The analysis highlights strong disparities within the area in terms of housing conditions. Very strong imbalances can be observed in the labour market, that result in an excessively small share of the population in employment. These imbalances affect mostly youth and women. However, access to health and safety in these neighborhoods are better than what was hypothesized before the implementation of the survey. _________________________________ Cette étude dresse un panorama des conditions de vie des habitants de quartiers pauvres de la ville de Djibouti bénéficiant du Projet de Développement Urbain Intégré (PDUI).

Son analyse met en avant des disparités élevées à l’intérieur de la zone dans les conditions d’habitats. Le marché du travail quant à lui présente de trÃ
