AIA Housing & Community Engagement in UN-Habitat
This program, led by architect participants in recent UN-Habitat programs, will describe how Habitat works to promote transformative change in human settlements through knowledge, policy advice, technical assistance, and collaborative action. Participants will learn about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which set measurable standards for improving human welfare and addressing climate change including providing adequate housing. The SDGs recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change. Also discussed will be the policies recently adopted by Habitat and the UN that support this urgent call for action.
