UN-Habitat in Partnership with Latin America and The Caribbean
Latin America and the Caribbean is the most urbanised region in the world with 80 per cent of its population living in towns and cities. Today, the cities of Latin America and the Caribbean are at a crossroads: after decades in which central and local governments seemed unable to manage this rapid urbanisation, they now have the potential to achieve sustainable urban development in the years and decades to come.
UN-Habitat is proud to contribute to the positive new changes in the region. This brochure provides a broad overview of UN-Habitat’s support to the region, reflecting on what has been
achieved, how it was made possible and what lies ahead, for the urban future in the region.
