Habitat III: Policy Units

In the process towards the elaboration of the New Urban Agenda, the Habitat III Policy Units submitted the ten Policy Paper Frameworks by 31 December 2015.

The Habitat III Policy Units are composed of a maximum of 20 experts each, bringing together individual experts from a variety of fields, including academia, government, civil society and other regional and international bodies. The Policy Units are co-led by two international organizations in collaboration with the Habitat III Secretariat.

Policy Units are intended to identify challenges, policy priorities and critical issues as well as development of action-oriented recommendations for implementation of the New Urban Agenda. The issues and policy recommendations addressed by each Policy Unit will serve as technical inputs for Member States’ consideration in the preparation of the outcome document of the Conference.

United Nations member states and accredited stakeholders are invited to transmit written comments on the Policy Paper Frameworks to  by note verbale and official letter respectively, no later than 31 January 2016.
