Introduction about the UN–Habitat
The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN–Habitat, is the United Nations agency for human settlements development. It is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable communities, towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all. The main documents outlining the mandate of the organization are the Vancouver Declaration on Human Settlements, Habitat Agenda, Istanbul Declaration on Human Settlements, the Declaration on Cities and Other Human Settlements in the New Millennium, and the Resolution 56/206. Its activities contribute to the overall objective of the United Nations to reduce poverty and promote sustainable development within the context and the challenges of a rapidly urbanising world.
UN–Habitat is headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, with a team of some 200 international and local staff, with regional offices for Asia and the Pacific in Fukuoka, Japan (ROAP–Fukuoka), for Latin America and the Caribbean in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (ROLAC), and for Africa and the Arab States in Nairobi, Kenya (ROAAS). The regional office for Eastern Europe and Transition Countries is also based in Nairobi.
In the Philippines Country Office (CO), key programs and projects include national urban policy support, capacity development to manage urban development and settlements, climate change, post-disaster shelter recovery, urban planning, urban poverty reduction and slum upgrading. Support to climate change programs and projects started as early as early as 2008 under the MDG Demo Project of the UN. Since then, the climate change program has evolved and grown into a strategic and regular technical assistance component of the Philippines Country Office.
