New name of the Committee

Since the adoption of recent international and regional agreements, such as the New Urban Agenda and the Geneva UN Charter on Sustainable Housing, the Committee has widened its scope of activities to confront emerging urban challenges in the UNECE region. Hence, the ECE Commission, at its 68th session, has changed the name of the Committee on Housing and Land Management to the “Committee on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management” to adequately reflect the broadened scope of work.
