Communities Decentralized in Front of Urban Disorders in Abidjan. The Case of Riviera-Bonoumin in the Municipality of Cocody (Côte d’Ivoire)
Situated in the “chic” municipality of Cocody, Riviera-Bonoumin as all the districts of the District of Abidjan, does not escape the phenomenon of the urban disorder. Faced with this unsightly landscape-level of modern times, operations of forced displacement of spaces illegally busy, works of drainage and healthiness, unexpected police visits on public domains illegally busy and in a anarchy way, take-off of posters and wild advertising hoardings, etc. are actions carried out by the municipality with the support of The Ministry of the Urban Healthiness. These actions can be effective, if the citizens are associated as mechanism of follow-up and control in the process.
