UN-Habitat: For a Better Urban Future…

UN-Habitat works in 90+ countries to promote transformative change in cities and human settlements through knowledge, policy advice, technical assistance and collaborative action. Their Strategic Plan is an integrated approach to solving the challenges and opportunities of twenty-first century cities and other human settlements.

UN-Habitat’s vision of “a better quality of life for all in an urbanizing world” is realized with partners building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities. They seek to promote urbanization as a positive force for people and communities, reducing inequality, discrimination and poverty.

UN-Habitat’s vital work takes various forms of technical assistance and draws on expertise in sustainable urbanization and crisis response. Through advocacy, communication and outreach, they mobilize public, political and financial support and collaborative action for sustainable urban development at local, national, and global levels (UN-Habitat, 2021).
