Our main objectives are to improve housing, urban and land governance and promote sustainable housing in all 56 member States of the ECE region.
We work through two main intergovernmental bodies: the UNECE Committee on Housing and Land Management (CHLM) and its subsidiary body – the Working Party on Land Administration (WPLA). Their work is supported by the Real Estate Market Advisory Group (REM) which advises both the CHLM and WPLA.
In 2010 the Committee decided to establish also an ad hoc Working Group on a Possible Framework Convention on Sustainable Housing (WGSH). Since then, the group meets regularly to pool expertise on sustainable housing and to discuss the possible development of a framework convention on that topic.
