Agencies pledge support for Habitat Agenda

All agencies working with the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements UNCHS (Habitat) have expressed their interest to work with Habitat to ensure the success of the shelter and urban programmes of the Centre.

The organizations made this commitment on June 4, 2001, in New York, U.S.A., during an interagency meeting organized by Habitat.

The discussion focused on organizational arrangements of the Special Session, the Draft Declaration on Cities and other Human Settlements, and the Report of the Executive Director of Habitat, Mrs. Anna Tibaijuka, on the review and appraisal of progress made in the implementation of the Habitat Agenda.

The agencies include the International Labor Organization (ILO), International Monetary Fund (IMF), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). Others are United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), World Health Organization (WHO), World Bank, United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UN-ECA), United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UN-ECLAC), and United Nations Economic Commission for Western Asia (UN-ESCWA).

Habitat was represented at the meeting by the Acting Deputy Executive Director, Mr. Daniel Biau; the Coordinator, Istanbul +5 and Secretary Committee of the Whole, Mrs. Axumite Gebre-Egziabher; and Mrs. Sylvia Lacroux, who will be Head of Habitat Office in Geneva from September this year.
