UN-Habitat is the United Nations programme working towards a better urban future. Its mission is to promote socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements development and the achievement of adequate shelter for all.

UN-Habitat has been working in Mozambique since 2002. Throughout the past years, UN-Habitat has built a strong position in the country and has worked closely with the Government of Mozambique and its partners. Currently UN-Habitat is working with teams based in Maputo, Nampula and Quelimane on projects concerning seven provinces. During the past 15 years, amongst others, the following areas were supported: urban planning and infrastructure, disaster risk reduction, rehabilitation and advocacy for urban resilience, housing and informal settlements upgrading, improving access to basic facilities and various training, studies and policy development support to the Government of Mozambique.
