Annual report 2007
The landmark decisions taken at the biennial gathering of governments in the UN-HABITAT Governing Council which oversees our work and budget were of great significance because 2007 marked a key turning point in human history. It was the year in which the world became fifty-percent urban.
For the first time, the majority of human beings were living in cities. And the process is accelerating.This transformation has a direct bearing on the strategies we must adopt to attain the Millennium Development Goals.
