National Urban Policies (NUP) have increasingly been adopted by countries in enhancing sustainable urban development and the achievement of the global agendas such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda (NUA). NUP was selected as one of the ten thematic policy units affirming the instrumental nature of the NUA in preparation of Habitat III. The NUA puts emphasis on NUP as one of the five pillars of implementation and encourages the need for capacity of the governments to develop and implement these policies. NUP have been proposed to be used as monitoring tools for the SDGs through indicator 11.a.1.

The course takes about 2 hours to complete.


The objective of this course is to understand:

  • What NUP is and its role towards sustainable urbanization
