UN-Habitat Executive Director, Maimunah Mohd Sharif, Message on World Habitat Day 2020

World Habitat Day 2020 offers an important opportunity to reflect on the effect of the COVID-19 crisis, and also how we can shape the future of human settlements more resilient.

Urban areas accounts for 95 percent of all confirmed cases, and have been at the epicentre of this pandemic. We have seen hospitals overflowing, jobs disappearing, schools closed and movement restricted. But we can, and we will recover, and use our experiences to build back better and greener.
