Strategy & Consulting
The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) is the lead United Nations agency for cities and human settlements. The agency was established as the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements (UNCHS), through the General Assembly Resolution 32/162 of December 1977, following the first global Conference of United Nations on Human Settlements that was held in Vancouver, Canada, in 1976. By resolution 56/206, the United Nations Generally Assembly elevated the UNCHS to Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat).
