    Our Structure

    Governance InfographicUN-Habitat is structured in three main bodies:

    • the Governing Council (GC), whose role is to set the major strategic and policy directions for UN-Habitat and approve its programmes and budget,
    • the UN-Habitat Secretariat – the executive body of the organization headquartered  in Nairobi, Kenya – whose task is to ensure the execution of the Governing Council’s decisions and to translate them into specific strategies and programmes,
    • and the Committee of Permanent Representatives (CPR), which ensures that the Governing Council’s decisions are enacted by the Secretariat within the set framework.
