The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-Habitat, is the agency for human settlements. It is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all.
The UN-Habitat’s vision of “a better quality of life for all in an urbanizing world” is bold and ambitious. UN-Habitat works with partners to build inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities. UN-Habitat promotes urbanization as a positive transformative force for people and communities, reducing inequality, discrimination and poverty.
UN-Habitat works in over 90 countries to promote transformative change in cities and human settlements through knowledge, policy advice, technical assistance and collaborative action. UN-Habitat’s new strategic plan 2020-2023 adopts a more strategic and integrated approach to solving the challenges and opportunities of twenty-first century cities and other human settlements. Our mission embodies the four main roles of the organization, which can be summarized as: think, do, share and partner.
In Mozambique since 2002, we are dedicated to working for a sustainable and resilient urban future for Mozambique. Over the past 19 years, UN-Habitat Mozambique has been developing and implementing a country programme based on the priority areas defined by Government of Mozambique, development partners and the main global development agendas. Currently, UN-Habitat Mozambique’s three programme pillars are: Sustainable Urbanisation; Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation; and Security of Land Tenure and Affordable Housing.
UN-Habitat has a long experience in Mozambique and has gained trust and credibility from the government and different partners for its work in the field of disaster risk reduction, urban planning, resilience and housing. The work carried out translates into technical advisory and normative services, a broad array of publications, pilot construction projects (school, health posts, radio station and housing, etc.), slum upgrading projects, plan and policy development and training of local, provincial and national staff. UN-Habitat adopts a strong community based and participatory approach with local communities and authorities in all its activities.
