Chapter 3 Policy Points
- If the emerging future of cities is to be sustainable, a new approach that places housing at the centre of urban policies is required.
- UN-Habitat proposes a strategy that places housing at the centre of the new urban agenda and seeks to reestablish the important role of housing in achieving sustainable urbanization.
- At the national level, the goal is to integrate housing into national urban policies and into UN-Habitat’s strategic thinking on planned urbanization.
- At the local level, the importance of housing must be reinforced within appropriate regulatory frameworks, urban planning and finance, and as part of the development of cities and people.
