Selina Auko Kubuta
Principal Housing Officer, Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing, Urban Development & Public Works
The Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing, Urban Development and Public Works, which hosts the National Secretariat on Human Settlements is the National Focal point on Housing and human settlements matters. It coordinates stakeholders’ participation in all human settlements and United Nations programs, activities and fora at the local, national, regional and international levels. These fora include but are not limited to the United Nations Habitat Assembly, United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Habitat Agenda, National, Regional and World Urban Fora, and World Habitat Day among others. Outcomes of these fora have been instrumental in informing Government policies and legislation at all levels. The Ministry constituted a broad-based National Habitat Committee (NHC) after the Habitat II Conference held in 1996 as was required by the Habitat Agenda. This report is structured into three parts that include: Transformative Commitments for Sustainable Urban Development; Effective Implementation; Follow-up and Review with achievements, challenges and lessons learnt outlined. The reporting process is expected to be continuous and is also aimed at creating and reinforcing partnerships among all relevant stakeholders and fostering exchanges of urban solutions and mutual learning. It is also for effective coordination and coherence in the implementation of the NUA.
This report has been prepared in partnership with relevant stakeholders in the sector who have committed to implement the NUA and to provide regular reports and progress of the implementation.
