2020 Catalogue of Services
The 2020 Catalogue of Services provides an overview of some of the tried and tested services UN-Habitat offers to support national governments, local governments, and stakeholders. This Catalogue provides a sampling of how UN-Habitat can support these partners to solve challenges and to advance sustainable urban development, though it does not capture all of UN-Habitat’s services, expertise, and tools.
UN-Habitat receives requests for assistance to address particular challenges faced by cities, regions and countries; therefore, this resource is divided into sub-sections to allow readers to quickly locate services that are most relevant for their context and priorities. Each service is tagged to clarify: which SDGs it supports; which outcome area of UN-Habitat’s Strategic Plan it supports; if it is highly relevant to COVID-19 recovery; and, finally, if it includes a capacity-building component. For clarity, the services are divided into the following sections:
A. Urban data, profiling, and monitoring
B. Participatory processes
C. Policy, legislation, and governance
F. Basic services and infrastructure
The Catalogue also presents how UN-Habitat’s five Flagship Programmes bring together and integrate a variety of these services, tools, and expertise to address different challenges holistically. These Flagships are:
1. Inclusive, vibrant neighbourhoods and communities
2. People-focused smart cities
3. Resilient settlements for the urban poor – RISE UP
4. Enhancing the positive impact of urban migration
5. SDG cities
UN-Habitat is here to support a better, sustainable urban future that leaves no one and no place behind. Thank you for your interest in this work; we hope this Catalogue clarifies some of the ways that we can provide this support. Please do not hesitate to reach out to UN-Habitat for further information about any of these services and to discuss how UN-Habitat can tailor a solution to your specific challenges, needs, timeline and goals.
