Addressing Urban and Human Settlement Issues in National Adaptation Plans

We live in an urban world: more than 55 per cent of the world population lives in urban areas today and this number will grow to 68 per cent by 2050. Cities are particularly vulnerable to Climate Change as the concentrate large populations and a centres for the national economy and social-economic development. In order to build the climate resilience of the national population and economy, building resilient cities and human settlements is essential.

UNACLA Report of activities 2015-2018

The United Nations Advisory Committee of Local Authorities (UNACLA) was established in 1999 by the Governing Council Resolution 17/18 as “an advisory body that would serve the purpose of strengthening the dialogue with local authorities from all over the world involved in the implementation of the Habitat Agenda”. UNACLA was created in the aftermath of Habitat II (1996) to materialize the special relation of local authorities as “our closest partners” as stated in the Istanbul Declaration.

Gender Sensitive Mini-Bus Services and Transport Infrastructure for African Cities

This Toolkit provides minimum standard guidelines and practical tools for creating safer and more accessible public transportation systems for women in African cities. It aims at showing public transport operators how to improve their services for women  and at local and national government authorities. UN-Habitat and the Flone Initiative developed the Toolkit based on the research conducted in Nairobi, Kenya, showing that women have  travel patterns from men and often experience sexual harassment in the streets or on public transport.
