The UNECE Committee on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management promotes cooperation among national and subnational authorities responsible for housing, urban development, and land administration and management in the UNECE region through facilitating policy dialogues and exchange of experiences and best practices, and providing technical assistance to countries with economies in transition. The Committee organizes its annual sessions and thematic meetings to support the exchange and building the capacities.
The Committee also supports strengthening of national urban policies through the development of Country Profiles on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management and support to the development and implementation of national action plans on sustainable housing and urban development.
The secretariat of the Committee cooperates with United Nations and other international organizations to support national urban policies through participating in the National Urban Policy Programme (NUPP), a joint initiative coordinated by UN-Habitat, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and Cities Alliance.
