UN-Habitat is closely working with its counterpart agency, Climate Change Division (CCD) and with the support of the core group is carving out a vision for cities in the country. The CCD has already notified a National Habitat Committee and its first meeting will be held soon. UN-Habitat has undertaken slum studies in Peshawar, Kohat and Islamabad. These studies are aimed at facilitating the government in upgrading urban slums/informal settlements and developing urban policies, including land use planning and governance.

UN-Habitat’s WASH community-based programming in Pakistan has significantly contributed to national and provincial drinking water, sanitation and Behaviour Change Communication policies aimed at improving urban health, water and hygienic sanitation through strengthened urban communication networks within communities and service providers.

The Government of Pakistan was facilitated in the drafting of National Sanitation Action Plan (NSAP 2010-2015), derived from the National Sanitation Policy, which provided a roadmap for national and sub-national governments in achieving the MDGs.
