UN-Habitat is the United Nations programme working towards a better urban future. Its mission is to promote socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements development and the achievement of adequate shelter for all. UN-Habitat Philippines programmes use a three-pronged approach:
Urban rules and regulations & Adequate planning rules and regulations are a prerequisite to the design, production and management of efficient and equitable human settlements.
Urban planning and design & The quality of urban planning and design has a determining impact on the value generated by human settlements through efficient and equitable public space, streets and buildable areas.
Municipal Finance & Efficient and transparent municipal finance systems are key to investments, maintenance and management of the city. They should ensure redistribution of benefits generated by urban endogenous development.
UN-Habitat serves as the PSC Secretariat. It is responsible for the technical and logistical requirements for as well as the documentation of meetings.
