Activities UN-HABITAT’s programs are designed to address human settlement issues, including the spread of slums, collapse of rural communities, lack of space and dwellings, inadequate provision of electricity, water and sanitation, diseases created by unhygienic conditions, and inequity in land ownership due to a lack of proper political/legal regulations, which result from rapid urbanization, conflicts and disasters. Specifically, programs designed to support and provide guidance to residents, municipalities, or government about: 1) improvement of housing, environment, urban life infrastructures such as roads, water supplies, sewage and waste processing systems, construction/rehabilitation of schools and hospitals, promotion of disaster prevention, community rulemaking, and job training programs; 2) examination, discussion, and dissemination of information on the current state of human settlements in each country and region; and 3) sharing and transmitting information through promotion of the“Knowledge Management Center for Asia and Pacific (K-CAP)”, and making policy proposals.
