Commonwealth Youth Forum Opening ceremony: Statement by Mrs. Anna Tibaijuka Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations  
Entebbe, Uganda
I am very excited to be back in Uganda. Last year I was here in April when I had the privilege to address the commonwealth meeting on Africa’s urbanization crisis. It is an honor and a privilege for me to be here with you today at this Commonwealth Youth Forum I wish to congratulate the Commonwealth Youth Council for organizing this youth forum which will provide a platform for young people to contribute to the Commonwealth and the Commonwealth Heads of Government agendas. I am pleased that this forum also provides an independent platform for youth representatives to consider their agenda at the same time as the Commonwealth Heads of Governments Meeting.

Statement of the Executive Director, UN-HABITAT On the occasion of World Habitat Day 2009  

We have chosen the theme, Planning our Urban Future, for World Habitat Day 2009 for a simple but very important reason: In many parts of our world urban planning systems have changed very little. Indeed, they are often contributors to urban problems rather than tools for human and environmental improvement.

Rio de Janeiro
If women do not feel safe, the city is unsafe. And this means providing safety from the home and all those places in between—streets, parks, schools, neighbourhoods and other public spaces. It must be a continuum – from door to door, day and night.
