National Urban Policy: Asia and the Pacific Report
The objective of this review is to survey, inform and evaluate national urban policies and strategies developed by national governments in the Asia and Pacific region. The purpose of the review is to assist UN Habitat and other national and international stakeholders involved with urban policy and management in pre-dominantly middle to low income countries.
The research encompasses both a recent generation of NUPs in the region as well as a set of older national urban programs for urban development. A particular focus of this report is institutional structures, legal frameworks and foundations, and financial and technical capacity, oriented to promoting long-term policy development monitoring of urban problems and responses.
