QUITO DECLARATION ON SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND HUMAN SETTLEMENTS FOR ALL

1. We, the Heads of State and Government, Ministers and High Representatives, have gathered at the United

Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) from 17 to 20 October

2016 in Quito, Ecuador, with the participation of sub-national and local governments, parliamentarians, civil

society, indigenous peoples and local communities, the private sector, professionals and practitioners, the

scientific and academic community, and other relevant stakeholders, to adopt a New Urban Agenda.

2. By 2050 the world urban population is expected to nearly double, making urbanization one of the 21st

century’s most transformative trends. As the population, economic activities, social and cultural

interactions, as well as environmental and humanitarian impacts, are increasingly concentrated in cities, this

poses massive sustainability challenges in terms of housing, infrastructure, basic services, food security,

health, education, decent jobs, safety, and natural resources, among others.

3. Since the United Nations Conferences on Human Settlements in Vancouver in 1976 and in Istanbul in 1996,

and the adoption of the Millennium Development Goals in 2000, we have seen improvements in the quality

of life of millions of urban inhabitants, including slum and informal settlement dwellers. However, the

persistence of multiple forms of poverty, growing inequalities, and environmental degradation, remain

among the major obstacles to sustainable development worldwide, with social and economic exclusion and

spatial segregation often an irrefutable reality in cities and human settlements.

4. We are still far from adequately addressing these and other existing and emerging challenges; and there is a

need to take advantage of the opportunities of urbanization as an engine of sustained and inclusive

economic growth, social and cultural development, and environmental protection, and of its potential

contributions to the achievement of transformative and sustainable development.

5. By readdressing the way cities and human settlements are planned, designed, financed, developed,

governed, and managed, the New Urban Agenda will help to end poverty and hunger in all its forms and

dimensions, reduce inequalities, promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, achieve

gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls, in order to fully harness their vital

contribution to sustainable development, improve human health and well-being, as well as foster resilience

and protect the environment.

6. We take full account of the milestone achievements in the course of the year 2015, in particular the 2030

Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Addis

Ababa Action Agenda of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, the Paris

Agreement adopted under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), the

Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, the Vienna Programme of Action for Landlocked

Developing Countries for the Decade 2014-2024, the Small Island Developing States Accelerated Modalities

of Action (SAMOA) Pathway and the Istanbul Programme of Action for the Least Developed Countries for

the Decade 2011-2020. We also take account of the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, the

World Summit on Sustainable Development, the World Summit for Social Development, the International

Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action, the Beijing Platform for Action, and the

United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, and the follow up to these conferences.

7. While recognizing that it did not have an intergovernmental agreed outcome, we take note of the World

Humanitarian Summit in May 2016 in Istanbul.

8. We acknowledge the contributions of national governments, as well as the contributions of sub-national

and local governments, in the definition of the New Urban Agenda and take note of the second World

Assembly of Local and Regional Governments.

9. This New Urban Agenda reaffirms our global commitment to sustainable urban development as a critical

step for realizing sustainable development in an integrated and coordinated manner at global, regional,

national, sub-national, and local levels, with the participation of all relevant actors. The implementation of

2

the New Urban Agenda contributes to the implementation and localization of the 2030 Agenda for

Sustainable Development in an integrated manner, and to the achievement of the Sustainable Development

Goals (SDGs) and targets, including SDG 11 of making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient,

and sustainable.

10. The New Urban Agenda acknowledges that culture and cultural diversity are sources of enrichment for

humankind and provides an important contribution to the sustainable development of cities, human

settlements, and citizens, empowering them to play an active and unique role in development initiatives;

and further recognizes that culture should be taken into account in the promotion and implementation of

new sustainable consumption and production patterns that contribute to the responsible use of resources

and address the adverse impact of climate change.

Our shared vision

11. We share a vision of cities for all, referring to the equal use and enjoyment of cities and human settlements,

seeking to promote inclusivity and ensure that all inhabitants, of present and future generations, without

discrimination of any kind, are able to inhabit and produce just, safe, healthy, accessible, affordable,

resilient, and sustainable cities and human settlements, to foster prosperity and quality of life for all. We

note the efforts of some national and local governments to enshrine this vision, referred to as right to the

city, in their legislations, political declarations and charters.

12. We aim to achieve cities and human settlements where all persons are able to enjoy equal rights and

opportunities, as well as their fundamental freedoms, guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter

of the United Nations, including full respect for international law. In this regard, the New Urban Agenda is

grounded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, international human rights treaties, the Millennium

Declaration, and the 2005 World Summit Outcome. It is informed by other instruments such as the

Declaration on the Right to Development.
