National Urban Policies


UN-Habitat defines a National Urban Policy (NUP) as “a coherent set of decisions through a deliberate government-led process of coordinating and rallying various actors towards a common vision and goal that will promote more transformative, productive, inclusive and resilient urban development for the long term”.

The NUPs offer a large capacity to address aspects of the New Urban Agenda and align national and local activities with priority issues on global agendas.
