UNEP and UN-Habitat Greener Cities Partnership
For over two decades, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat)) have worked together to advocate for and promote environmental sustainability in urban development
The Greener Cities Partnership is envisaged to upscale the successful collaboration between UNEP and UN-Habitat. It aims to strengthen synergies between the two agencies and among their partners. Broadly, the objective of this cooperation is to mainstream the environmental perspective into urban policy-making and incorporate urban perspectives into the environmental policy-making, as well as to highlight the local-global linkages of environmental issues.
