Land and the New Urban Agenda Brief : English
The New Urban Agenda is about people. People need a place to live in dignity and a place means land; land for housing, working, education, commercial activities, leisure and transport. Today’s high population growth puts increasing pressure on land, which in turn becomes increasingly scarce and may cause social unrest and conflict. We are at a turning point! Use of and access to land need to be managed with care and responsibility in order to harness the transformative potential of the New Urban Agenda, in particular in situations where cities need to grow.
