Humanitarian Affairs and the Role of UN-Habitat , Strategic Policy on Human Settlements in Crisis and Sustainable Relief and Reconstruction Framework
This policy document articulates UN-HABITAT’s role with regard to human settlements in crisis. It responds to Resolution HSP/GC/20/17 and supporting documents produced in response to Resolution HSP/GC/19/9 in relation to “Post-conflict, natural and human-made disaster assessment and reconstruction”.
Further, this policy has been developed as an integral part of the UN-HABITAT’s Medium Term Strategic and Institutional Plan (MTSIP). The new plan articulates a specific provision for urban resiliency and vulnerability reduction in Focus Area 2, whereas post-crisis recovery and reconstruction is addressed under Focus Area 3.
