World Habitat Day


JUNE 2011
The theme of this year’s World Habitat Day, Cities and Climate Change, is chosen because climate change is fast becoming the preeminent development challenge of the 21st century. With most of humanity now living in towns and cities, the greatest impacts of disasters resulting from climate change begin and end in cities. This is also the subject of UN-HABITAT’s 2011 Global Report of Human Settlements
Mexico has offered to host this year’s Global Observance of World Habitat Day on 3 October 2011. The city where the celebrations will be held will be announced soon
