Sustainable Urbanization Capacity Building Programme (SU-CaB)

For the first time in history, the majority of human population lives in cities and towns. By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will be urban. Rapid urbanization has had a transformative impact on the organization of societies and is strongly associated with the decades-long economic expansion that has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. Studies show that nearly half of the 30 fastest-urbanizing countries in the world are members of the OIC. Given the scale of challenges and opportunities related to urbanization and security in OIC Member States, SESRIC in cooperation with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) initiated the Sustainable Urbanization Capacity Building Programme in 2014 with a view to supporting country-to-country and city-to-city exchange, knowledge-sharing, and capacity development within the OIC Region.

The valuable participation of national institutions will help SESRIC to effectively plan and implement capacity building training activities, which will play an important role in the improvement of human capital in the OIC Member States.
