The Sustainable Cities Programme (SCP) is a world-wide technical cooperation activity of the United Nations. It works at city level in collaboration with local partners to strengthen their capabilities for environmental planning and management (EPM).

Each city-level SCP project is adapted to the particular needs, priorities, and circumstances of that city; nonetheless, all SCP city projects follow the same general approach and all are implemented through the same series of activities known as the SCP Process.
