The Sustainable Cities Programme (SCP) is a global programme of the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements (UNCHS – Habitat) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). It is one of the leading technical cooperation programmes in the field of urban environmental planning and management and is the principal activity of the United Nations system for operationalising sustainable urban development and thus contributing toimplementation of the globally-agreed Agenda 21 and Habitat Agenda.

In the Philippines, the SCP-LEPM programme was implemented in Cagayan de Oro City as well as in Tagbilaran City and Lipa City.

Manual (PDF) on Integrating LEPM into the Comprehensive Land Use Plan based on the Cagayan de Oro City experience has also been published.

Replication guidelines (PDF) have also been developed together with the Department of Interior and Local Government to guide local governments in replicating the programme.
