Sustainable Urbanisation - Achieving Agenda 21
This publication is addressed to stakeholders at all levels, setting out specific promises and challenges of achieving sustainable urbanization. It elaborates on many of the issues raised at the first World Urban Forum that was held at UN-HABITAT headquarters in Nairobi in April-May 2002. At that Forum, a full range of Habitat Agenda partners came together to develop the concept of “sustainable urbanization” and to discuss its implementation. The publication was intended as a joint message to the World Summit for Sustainable Development, held in Johannesburg in August-September 2002.
