The Urban Basic Services Programme of UN-Habitat focuses on Urban Mobility; Urban Energy; Water and Sanitation; and Urban Waste Management, including drainage, as its four programmatic clusters. The Urban Basic Services Trust Fund, created in December 2013 supports implementation of projects and programmes targeted at achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to these four clusters.
URBAN BASIC SERVICES
As a result of UN-Habitatís water and sanitation programmes implemented in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean 36 countries have adopted pro-poor water and sanitation policies.
Through partnerships with multilateral development banks, the UN-Habitat Water and Sanitation Trust Fund has leveraged USD 500 million.
Through various capacity development programmes, 200 operators and institutions providing water and sanitation services have been supported to deliver urban basis services to more than 500 million consumers.
