UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour Award
The UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour award was launched by UN-Habitat in 1989 to encourage and recognize the countries, governments, organizations and individuals who have made great contributions to the development of housing. It is currently the most prestigious human settlements award in the world. Its aim is to acknowledge initiatives which have made outstanding contributions in various fields, such as shelter provision, highlighting the plight of the homeless, leadership in post conflict reconstruction, and improving human settlements and the quality of urban life.
The award, a plaque engraved with the name of the winner and their achievement, is presented to the winners during the World Urban Forum.
