First UN-HABITAT Lecture Award
Organized in cooperation with United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UNHABITAT) through Global Research Network on Human Settlements (HS-Net)
This address marks the first annual United Nations Human Settlements Lecture series. The UN-HABITAT Lecture award seeks to recognize outstanding and sustained contribution to research, thinking and practice in the human settlements field. A key component of the award is the delivery, by the award winner, of a lecture before a live audience. The delivery of the lecture is intended to stimulate global debate and provoke new thinking in the field of human settlements.
