The Habitat Country Programme Document for Nigeria outlines the main objectives and priorities for UN-HABITAT. In collaboration with the government and other United Nations Agencies, the overall aim of this UN-HABITAT Country Programme Document is to promote the Habitat Agenda. UN-HABITAT plays an active role in urban development and urban policy.

Through partnerships with the Federal Ministry of Environment, Housing and Urban Development, UN-HABITAT has assisted in identifying key urban issues, and areas needing support to improve the urban situation in Nigeria. Analysis of seven key sectors include: governance, land and housing, shelter and basic services, urban planning and management, housing/urban development and the environment, vulnerability reduction and capacity development.

The Nigeria UN-HABITAT Country Programme Document provides an overview of the national policy and the areas of intervention that Government must address in meeting its urban development challenges.
