The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all, support the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals as well as facilitate the implementation of the World New Urban Agenda.

National Urban Policy in Tunisia:

Current trends of rapid urban growth in developing countries imply a holistic approach to synergize urban planning and policy development efforts at the regional, national and local levels and generate sustainable urban environment. In this regard, National Urban Policy has been recognized as a substantive mechanism for governments to achieve a higher level of vertical and horizontal coordination and encourage transformative change, with the participation of all relevant stakeholders. By definition, a National Urban Policy (NUP) is a coherent set of decisions derived through a deliberate government-led process of coordinating and rallying various actors for a common vision and goals that will promote more transformative, productive, inclusive and resilient urban development on the long run. It promotes more compact, socially inclusive, better connected and integrated cities and territories that foster sustainable urban development and are resilient to climate change. Moreover, it contributes to the implementation and monitoring of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda.
In this respect, UN-Habitat Regional Office for Arab States, in collaboration with the UN-Habitat Tunisia Office, the Regional and Metropolitan Planning Unit at the Urban Planning and Design Branch of UN-Habitat, and Cities Alliance aim to support the Government of Tunisia in the development of a sustainable, inclusive and evidence-based NUP for the country. This will be facilitated by a number of practices including stakeholder consultation, institutional capacity development measures, evaluation of country policy processes and exchange of experiences and knowledge. The NUP development process is composed of five overlapping and interrelated phases including the feasibility, diagnostic, formulation, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. Throughout the five stages of the NUP process, three key pillars must be considered: inclusive participation, capacity development at all levels, and grounding policy through acupuncture projects, to enable the NUP to respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by urbanization.

Under the guidance and direct supervision of the Head of the Sub-Regional Office for the Maghreb, the incumbent assists in the effective and efficient management of the NUP project.

The Assistant Project Manager is based in Tunis (Tunisia) and works in close collaboration with the NUP Project team in the Country Office inTunis, Cairo (ROAS- Regional Office for the Arab States) and Nairobi (Headquarters).
