Inaugural Address UN Pavilion Lecture Series by Dr. Anna Kajumulo Tibaijuka, Under-Secretary-General & Executive Director  

The 19th Century was a period in history marked by major innovations in medicine and disease prevention which contributed to the rapid acceleration in population growth in the western world. Europe’s population doubled from roughly 200 million to more than 400 million inhabitants. The 19th Century was remarkable in the widespread formation of new settlements, particularly in North America and Australasia, with approximately 70 million people leaving Europe in quest of a better life. In the beginning of the 19th Century, only 2 percent of the global population lived in urban areas. The Industrial Revolution spread from the United Kingdom through Europe, North America, and eventually to the whole world.

UN-HABITAT’s mandate to achieve ‘Adequate shelter for all’ and ‘Sustainable human settlements’ presents a formidable but often forgotten challenge for the international community. In the context of the effective implementation of the Habitat Agenda and the Millennium Development Goals, UN-HABITAT is asked to strengthen local authorities, community organizations and non-governmental organizations so they may be more effective in the spheres of education, health, poverty eradication, human rights, social integration, and infrastructure.
