The Steering Committee serves two purposes:
- To decide on policies and strategic priorities for activities that partners have agreed to undertake together or with the support of one other. This requires that partners define their respective organizational priorities for the Campaign and identify those partners/networks with which they would like to work together as part of the World Urban Campaign to enhance mutual impact.
- To advise UN-HABITAT in carrying out its activities, especially through the World Urban Forum that is mandated to provide technical advice to the Executive Director of UN-HABITAT.
At the fifth session of the Steering Committee held in Shanghai (8-10 October 2010), Mr. Nicholas You was elected as the Chair of the Steering Committee. At the same meeting, Professor Eugenie Birch was elected as the Co-Chair of the Steering Committee.
