The evolution of national urban policies

UN-Habitat recently published the document ‘The Evolution of National Urban Policies’, with the aim of explaining the experience of national urban policies in selected countries around the world in order to draw the main lessons and enable other interested countries to formulate and apply their own policies.

The document includes a section on the history of national urban policies from their beginnings to the present. In addition, it includes a section devoted exclusively to examples of urban policies in various countries, grouped by continent: Asia, Latin America, Oceania and Africa. It then concludes with the key points for generating national urban policies.
