This brochure provides a brief visual overview of UN-Habitat’s role following the adoption by member states of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015, and the New Urban Agenda in 2016.

As a normative, operational, and coordinating organization, our urbanization work is linked to the five thematic areas of the 2030 Agenda: people, through our technical cooperation and  engagement down to the municipality level; planet, through the recognition that sustainable urbanization is part of the solution to climate change; prosperity, with urbanization as a pathway to wealth creation, poverty reduction, and equity; peace, through the increasing recognition that urbanization is inextricably linked to global security, particularly in the context of the growing  number of humanitarian crises affecting urban areas, including migration; and partnership, since the challenge of urbanization demands global coalitions.
