Presentación de los Premios Mundiales del Hábitat 2012

A commemorative publication featuring the 2012 World Habitat Awards at the closing ceremony of the Sixth World Urban Forum in Naples, Italy, including detailed descriptions of the World Habitat Award winning projects in Uruguay and Mexico.

The 2012 World Habitat Awards for innovative and sustainable housing solutions were presented at the closing ceremony of the World Urban Forum 6 in Naples, Italy, on Thursday, 6th September 2012.

The World Urban Forum (WUF) is organised biannually by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT), bringing together a wide range of urban development actors in order to share knowledge and experiences on making our cities smarter and more inclusive.

The sixth session of the World Urban Forum was hosted by the Government of Italy and the City of Naples, in collaboration with UN-HABITAT.

The theme of the World Urban Forum 6 was ‘The Urban Future’, recognising the fact that the future of humanity is urban and recognising that half the global population lives in towns and cities. Given that the future for humanity is urban, cities must therefore lead the quest for sustainable development.

This commemorative report includes:

  • Message to the World Urban Forum – Mr Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General, United Nations
  • The Urban Future – Dr Joan Clos, Executive Director, UN-HABITAT
  • A summary of the 2012 World Habitat Award winning projects: South-South Cooperation: International transfer of the FUCVAM model of mutual aid housing cooperatives, Uruguay, and Green Mortgage, Mexico.
  • Information on the 2012 Habitat Scroll of Honour Awards and World Habitat Award finalists.
