UNDA 10th tranche

Evidence-based policies for sustainable housing and urban development in selected countries with economies in transition

Limited access of the population to affordable, healthy and energy-efficient housing and inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities is framed by the insufficient capacity of national governments to develop and implement evidence-based housing and urban development policies.

The project's aim is to strengthen national capacities for the development of evidence-based policies for sustainable housing and urban development in selected countries.

The project will support achieving Sustainable Development Goal 11: “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”.

Countries project activities

  • Development of the policy paper with the methodology for data collection on housing, urban development and land administration relevant to the post-2015 Agenda on cities and human settlements and country specific guidelines for the countries
