The Millennium Development Goal 7, Target 11, commits the international community to improving the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers by the year 2020. UN-Habitat implements programmers in promoting improved Housing Policy, Housing Rights, Land and Tenure and Slums/Settlements Upgrading. It works closely with governments, municipalities and civil society organizations.
