UN-Habitat is the United Nations agency that promotes sustainable urbanization and housing for all. Working with national and local governments in the Pacific Region, UN-Habitat has been supporting Pacific Urban Forums since 2004, implements climate resilience, urban planning and informal settlements upgrading projects. For more information about UN-Habitat’s work in the Pacific region including the Pacific Urban Forum visit: http://www.fukuoka.unhabitat.org/projects/pacific_islands/detail02_en.html.
The Ministry of Lands, Housing and Survey is UN-Habitat’s line ministry and most important national government partner in the Solomon Islands. Given the current geographical focus, Honiara City Council is a key partner as well. Currently UN-Habitat implements two programmes in the Solomon Islands, the Participatory Settlements Upgrading Programme (PSUP) and the Cities and Climate Change Initiative.
