Unverified non-profit organisation

The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-HABITAT, is the United Nations 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.

As the focal point for implementation of the Habitat Agenda, the Declaration on Cities and other Human Settlements in the New Millennium, the agency and its partners in government, regional and local authorities, civil society, and the private sector have drawn increasingly closer to the lives of the urban poor and thus to the achievement of the Millenium Goals. Although UN-HABITAT’s beneficiaries are the urban poor, its key audience remains the policy-maker at every level with the power and authority to tackle urban poverty by providing resources, by removing barriers and by ensuring their human and civil rights.
