Statement of the Executive Director of UN-HABITAT, Mrs. Anna Tibaijuka on the occasion of the Baghdad Conference  
Baghdad, Iraq
Housing is a fundamental human right and it is the duty of all responsible governments to ensure that each and every citizen has access to adequate housing along with all basic infrastructure and services such as access roads, water and sanitation, electricity, other community services. The failure to do so in a timely and cost effective manner results in the proliferation of slums which are the breeding grounds of disease and deprivation, the loss of human dignity and ultimately deep rooted frustrations that find vent in violence both within homes and outside.

Statement By Ms. Anna Tibaijuka Under Secretary General & Executive Director at the 3rd C40 Large Cities Climate Summit Plenary Session 1: Climate Change and the Economic Crisis: The Financial Benefits Associated with Greenhouse Gas Reduction.  
Seoul, Republic of Korea
It is an honour and a pleasure for me to address this third meeting of the C40 Large Cities Climate Summit. Given Seoul’s fascinating approach to urban environmental issues, I am delighted that this conference is being held in this dynamic city. Although the Conference will address issues of interest to cities around the world, holding this meeting in Korea – and for the first time in Asia - should provide an excellent opportunity to pay attention to some of the specific issues facing the rapidly growing cities in the region.: Korea provides an interesting case study as it is one of the most highly urbanized countries in the world, 82 out of every 100 Koreans live in a city whilst in 1975 only 50 percent of the Korean population was urban.
Statement By Ms. Anna Tibaijuka Under Secretary General & Executive Director at the Climate Change Expo Opening Ceremony Congratulatory Remarks Seoul, Republic of Korea, 18 May 2009  

This exhibition showcases how far applied science has come. The technologies presented here will go a long way in reducing our Climate Footprint. Innovations that result in new levels of energy efficiency and new technologies and processes that lead to a fossil-fuel free future must also be at the forefront of a Green New Deal to revive our economies.
Statement by Mrs. Anna Kajumulo Tibaijuka Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director, UN-HABITAT New York, 13 May 2009  

It is my great pleasure to be with you all today to discuss the critical issue of responding to the food crisis through sustainable development. Some of you may be wondering what the Head of the United Nations agency for cities has to say on the issue of food security. I will show you that cities are fundamental to the food security issue and that without putting them into the equation we will not solve the food security problem.
