National Urban Policies (NUP) have increasingly been adopted by countries in enhancing sustainable urban development and the achievement of the global agendas as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda (NUA) among others. 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 also put emphasis on NUPs as one of its five pillars of implementation and encourages the need for capacity of the governments to develop and implement these policies.
