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.

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.
