What is the Habitat Exchange?

The Habitat Exchange is a portal for learning and collaboration, as well as a venue
for the dissemination of ecologically sound and socially equitable urban development
resources. We intend this site to provide a platform for many diverse online research,
teaching and information exchange initiatives and we welcome ideas for partnerships
and collaboration.

Currently The Habitat Exchange includes:
  • A collection of selected print resources which provide practical assistance in
    addressing the need for more socially and ecologically sustainable cities.
  • A collection of archival materials.
  • A platform for the peer review of urban development practices.

What is the Habitat Archives?

The Habitat Archives is a collection within the Habitat Exchange of selected print, video
and audio documentation from past UN-HABITAT conferences. If you have any materials
from past UN conference we encourage you to include them in our archival collection.
