UIA takes on leadership of the UN-Habitat Professional Forum

The International Union of Architects takes on the leadership of the UN-Habitat Professional Forum (HPF). UIA representative Mona Rady (Egypt) was elected Chair of the HPF at the World Urban Forum 10, which took place in Abu Dhabi, the 8 - 13 February 2020. She is pictured here with Maimunah Mohd Sharif, UN-Habitat executive director.

The Habitat Professionals Forum (HPF) was established in 1999 under the auspices of UN-HABITAT as an inter-disciplinary partnership of Human Settlement Professionals and UN-HABITAT. This followed the visionary initiative of a number of HPF founding members, including the UIA, who came together in 1996 at the second United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (HABITAT II) in Istanbul, Turkey. HPF was established to promote the delivery of sustainable urbanisation and equitable human settlements. It consists of several international built environment associations which are democratic, non-profit, non-political and non-governmental.

 

The HPF was established to meet the need for enhanced global co-operation between professionals engaged in the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable urban development.
