It gives me great pleasure to celebrate the global festivities of World Habitat Day this year from this beautiful city of Naples.

Promoting South-South & Triangular Cooperation in Support of Sustainable Urbanisation By Anna Tibaijuka Executive Director, UN-HABITAT, Director-General, United Nations Office at Nairobi at the 15th Session High-Level Committee on South-South Cooperation  
New York
I am honoured to be part of the deliberations of this high-level panel on south-south cooperation. South-south cooperation is a centrepiece of UN-Habitat’s mandate and way of doing business. It has been so since the adoption of the Habitat Agenda by member States in Istanbul 1996. This global plan of action calls for enhanced cooperation, transfer of technology, and the systematic exchange of knowledge, expertise and experience at all levels to meet its twin goals of “shelter for all” and “sustainable urbanisation”.

PRESENTATION by Mrs ANNA K.TIBAIJUKA, UNDER SECRETARY GENERAL of the UNITED NATIONS and EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of UN-HABITAT to the PLANNING CONVENTION of the Royal Town Planning Institute

I would like to start by thanking the Royal Town Planning Institute for inviting me to address you today. I would like to congratulate the Institute, and particularly Jim Claydon, its President, and Robert Upton, its Secretary-General, for giving a high profile to issues of international development in your Convention. I understand Robert is unwell and I wish him an early recovery. I would also like to acknowledge Clive Harridge, your Immediate Past President, whom I had the pleasure of meeting at the World Urban Forum in Vancouver last year. The RTPI made a powerful contribution to the Forum, a gathering of over 10,000 people from around the world, and its effort was crucial in putting planning back on the international agenda, from whence it has been missing for at least the last twenty years.

UN-HABITAT welcomed the invitation from the Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Mr. Kouchener, in mid-1999 to assist the UN Mission in Kosovo to address a range of issues including local governance, rebuilding a land administration system and infrastructure in Kosovo, and developing the means to ensure restitution for people who lost their properties, and to help regularize informal transactions during the decade from 1989 to 1999. It is the celebration of the handover of the last case resolved by the Housing and Property Directorate and the Housing and Property Claims Commission that we are here for today, and I am proud that UN-HABITAT has been recognized for its contribution in to this most deserving endeavour.
