UN-Habitat Mandate

Strategic Plan for 2020 to 2025

UN-Habitat office in the I.R. Iran is utilizing the regional and global advocacy platforms and partnerships platforms towards the scaled-up achievement of sustainable urban development and links them more strongly with the achievement of the Strategic Plan of UN-Habitat for 2020-2025.

UN-Habitat Strategic Plan 2020-2025 is a document that focuses on the Agency’s commitment and contribution to the implementation of these global development agendas. The Strategic Plan aligns the Agency with the United Nations’ reform agenda, which includes:

(i) the reform of the peace and security architecture; 

(ii) development system reform; and

(iii) management reform,

by articulating the unique value proposition of UN-Habitat within the UN system and emphasizing the need for organizational coherence, transparency, efficiency, agility, and accountability. UN-Habitat’s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan creates a strong narrative of change, clearly articulating the relationship of sustainable urbanization with the overall notion of sustainable development.
