UN-Habitat in Partnership with Asia and Pacific States
The dynamic and populous Asia-Pacific region is home to 3.7 billion people and represents 56 per cent of the world’s population. Comprising of 58 countries that stretch from Iran in the west to the Pacific Islands in the east, the region is perhaps also the most diverse in terms of economy, society, culture, environment and human settlements. UN-Habitat, the United Nations city agencys’ partnership with the Asia Pacific Region spans more than three decades and since August 1997, has embedded a stronger footprint in the Region through its regional office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP), located in Fukuoka, Japan. UN-Habitat has played an important
role in bringing technical expertise and financial assistance to developing countries to cope with enormous and complex challenges posed by rapid urbanization, disasters and conflict.
