National Urban Development and Housing Framework (2009-2016) identified urbanization trends and the issues and drivers of the urban system. It lays out the vision and guiding principles and the strategic recommendations for the country’s urban development.
An update of the previous framework (NUDHF 1999-2004), this is a product of a rigorous and careful process of policy reviews and consultations. It complements existing policies as defined in various documents. More importantly, its major feature is its being more strategic in character. As a basis for its recommendation for specific courses of action, the framework first explains the current performance and efficiency of the urban system, with focus on the drivers of key urban issues and problems as well as the institutional environment in which policies and programs operate.
The overall vision of this framework focuses on urban competitiveness and poverty reduction, housing affordability and delivery, development and management of sustainable communities, and performance-oriented governance.
