UN-HABITAT is the agency dedicated for creating human settlements for poor people across the world. UN-HABITAT focuses on promoting environmentally sustainable settlements in different parts of the world and works towards achieving the goal of adequate shelter for all. Vancouver Declaration on Human Settlements, Habitat Agenda, Istanbul Declaration on Human Settlements, the Declaration on Cities and Other Human Settlements in the New Millennium, and Resolution 56/206 are the primary documents that summarize the mandate of UN-HABITAT.
Budget of UN-HABITAT
UN-HABITAT generates its budget from contributions from multilateral and bilateral partners for technical cooperation. The agency also receives earmarked contributions from governments and other partners, including local authorities and foundations, and around 5 per cent from the regular UN budget.
