Policy, Legislation and Governance Section: Annual Report 2021

This is the second Policy, Legislation and Governance Section (PLGS) Annual report on the implementation of the Strategic Plan 2020-2025, reporting progress and achievements for the year 2021. This report demonstrates the Section’s catalytic role in implementing initiatives to contribute to UN-Habitat’s mandate as well as the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.

The Section has been advancing many areas of UN-Habitat’s work, using effective and innovative approaches, and working progressively with strategic partners to deliver technical and operational support to partner national and subnational governments in 2021.

Amid another challenging year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the reporting period was result-oriented, with various milestones achieved. The report demonstrates the continued adaptive capabilities and resilience of the Section’s personnel as well as the beneficiary national and subnational governments and their cities and communities.
