UN-HABITAT and Environment and Development Action in the Third World (ENDA) Monday signed an agreement of cooperation aimed at assessing the progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) relating to human settlements.
Mariam Sow, the ENDA acting Chief Executive of Environment and UN-HABITAT’s Executive Director, Mrs. Anna Tibaijuka, signed the agreement aimed essentially at localising the Habitat Agenda and the MDGs.
With the signing of the agreement of cooperation, ENDA hopes to bring its regional expertise to the fore as it continues to raise awareness and disseminate information on key urban issues, execute demonstrative projects at local level and provide mechanisms for monitoring, assessing and reporting back on progress in realizing the objectives of the Millennium Development Goals that governments of the World committed to in 2000.
Founded in 1972, ENDA is a non profit international organization whose autonomous branches are coordinated by an Executive Secretariat. The organization collaborates with grassroots groups to find alternative development models based on the experience, expectations and objectives of marginalised groups.
