Description Superseded the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements on 1 January 2002. The mission of UN-Habitat is to promote socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements development and the achievement of adequate shelter for all. UN-Habitat, formerly known as UNCHS (or Habitat), was established in October 1978 as the lead agency within the United Nations system for coordinating activities in the field of human settlements. It is the focal point for the implementation of the Habitat Agenda – the global plan of action adopted by the international community at the second United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) in Istanbul, Turkey, in June 1996.
Not to be confused with the (related) United Nations Conference on Human Settlements, the short name of which is Habitat.
For background on UN-Habitat see GA resolution 56/206 ["Strengthening the mandate and status of the Commission on Human Settlements and the status, role and functions of the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements (Habitat)"] and ST/SGB/2002/14: "Organization of the secretariat of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme".
