UN-Habitat: Sustainable Urban Development Network

The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, or UN-HABITAT, is the organization’s agency for human settlements. The group’s main objective is to “promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all.” More specifically, the Sustainable Urban Development Network, or SUD-NET, works to reduce poverty and encourage the creation and development of “livable, productive and inclusive cities.” Those interested in globalization and urban development worldwide will find much of interest here, including the group’s key activities, thematic focus areas, partnerships, and reports. “Cities and Climate Change Initiative,” a 2009 report, is currently featured on the website, and is available for download as a PDF.
