World Habitat Day 2019

Frontier Technologies as an innovative tool to transform waste to wealth

World Habitat Day, observed on the first Monday of October each year, supports UN-Habitat’s mission towards transformative change in cities and human settlements.

UN-Habitat is this year promoting the contribution of innovative frontier technologies to sustainable waste management to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 11: inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities. Going beyond solid waste this includes all waste produced by human activity (solid, liquid, domestic, industrial and commercial), which continues to have a devastating impact on climate change, public health and the environment.

Technology has great potential to improve how people work and live, to significantly accelerate efforts to achieve the SDGs and address climate change.

Last year, over 80 cities around the world held events to mark World Habitat Day.  Find out more about the day on the UN Habitat Website.
