National & Regional Campaigns

National campaigns are designed to translate good governance principles into practice. National campaigns are usually initiated through a campaign launch: a public event to secure the commitments of all national partners - national governments, local governments, other stakeholder groups - to good urban governance.
The launch recognizes past achievements in good urban governance and signals the beginning of a new series of activities to further improve the quality of life in cities.

A campaign launch usually includes three components:

  • media event to raise awareness of past achievements and future plans in the area of good urban governance
  • substantive event such as a policy review, a capacity-building workshop or a learning event such as an exchange of best practices
  • action-plan for improving urban governance, prepared in advance by key local partners
For more information on the elements of a campaign launch, please see the Campaign Launch Note.

Currently, campaigns are being implemented in the following countries/regions:

  • Campaign for Good Urban Governance in Latin America and the Caribbean - Launched jointly with UN-HABITAT's Secure Tenure Campaign on 27 October 2000 in Santiago, Chile.
  • Nigerian Campaign for Good Urban Governance - launched by His Excellency, President Olusegun Obasanjo, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, on 10 April 2001. Go to the Press Release.
Campaigns are also being prepared for 2002-03 in Burkina Faso, Senegal, Tanzania, The Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Peru, the Balkans and in the Arab States.
