UN Habitat Executive Director’s Message to the 7th GLTN Partners Meeting 2018
1 Min Read
Let us look forward to GLTN Phase 3, which will continue to address land tenure security for all access to land and security of tenure with more purpose.
The work of the GLTN Partners is impressive, with a real domino effect influencing positive changes in the lives of urban poor.
Land is central to achieving sustainable development and to fight inequality for women and you people.
Land is central to UN Habitat’s mandate, sustainable development and urbanization.
Land and tenure security is critical to the delivery of the SGDs and NUA.
When inclusively managed, land can be used to fight poverty, reduce conflict, establish Food security and prevent unplanned urbanization. Land is where development starts.
Land cannot be put aside. The New Urban Agenda explicitly acknowledges the GLTN’s central coordinating role on land in Para 35. Through partnership with GLTN, UN-Habitat will enhance support to the Network’s work.
