International Resource Page
The International Committee collects and disseminates information on housing and community development in foreign countries. The committee identifies innovative programs, development techniques, and management systems that may be usable in the United States. The committee also shares information on American programs with its foreign counterparts. The committee encourages local housing and community development personnel to participate in international meetings, including official delegations organized by federal agencies, and it arranges informational exchanges with professionals in other countries. After receiving recommendations from regional presidents on appointments to the International Committee, the national president appoints members to the committee for two-year terms.
UN-HABITAT Launches the World Urban Campaign
The World Urban Campaign is an opportunity for NAHRO members to share "living practices" and learn from practitioners around the world. UN-HABITAT launched the World Urban Campaign at the 2010 fifth Forum held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on March 26, 2010. The campaign seeks to continue and build upon the success of the World Urban Forum, in creating a global platform to address pressing urban issues. The campaign seeks to engage public, private and civil society partners to share practical tools and promote policies for sustainable urbanization; it also seeks to position sustainable urbanization as a priority issue.
The campaign will make extensive use the Internet to build a network of partners and serve as a global platform for collaboration on urban issues. The launch video for the World Urban Campaign was recently posted on YouTube, and a page on the UN-HABITAT website provides general information about the Campaign and background documents. The campaign's "e-forum" will provide an online platform for local partners to share information on new projects and ideas, knowledge and experience.
The first common effort of the World Urban Campaign is the 100 Cities Initiative, which will highlight and celebrate innovations that make cities more sustainable by sharing local stories and outcomes. The initiative will culminate in a planned 100 Cities Summit in 2011.
