About Us


The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat ) provides achievable solutions to current challenges cities face by promoting socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements, and adequate shelter for all. The agency combines technical expertise for operational implementation to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. Beyond its core areas of city planning, infrastructure development and participatory slum upgrading, UN-Habitat also focuses on gender, youth and capacity building as well as urban legislation and risk management.

UN- Habitat strives to provide support reflecting the New Urban Agenda (NUA) in city and country development plans and policies, making expertise on sustainable urban development available to governments at all stages of implementation, monitoring and reporting. UN-Habitat has gained a unique and a universally acknowledged expertise in all things urban, with a view to ensure that Sustainable Development Goal 11 and the rest of the SDGs are successfully implemented and achieved

The City Prosperity Initiative

The City Prosperity Initiative (CPI) is the United Nation’s platform for urban data, developed to formulate evidence based decision making and monitoring for cities. The basis of the Initiative is an Index created by UN-Habitat in 2012, developed as a response to the demand of local authorities in need of a tool which measures the prosperity and sustainability of cities. The CPI serves as a baseline setting, a decision making tool, a policy dialogue and a monitoring instrument. The Index is current and evolving, and uses different tools to develop products which measure the different aspects of urbanization of a city.

Goal 11 indicators and other SDGs, using several transformational interventions based on the main components of the New Urban Agenda which include Planning and Urban Design, Urban Legislation and Governance, and Urban Economy and Municipal Finance. The platform offers the possibility of adopting a citywide approach to development beyond the sectorial nature of the SDG indicators and, at the same time, it will offer the possibility of individual disaggregation of indicators and computing city and country aggregated values.
