Short description

In support to the goals of the One Planet Sustainable Buildings and Construction Programme (SBC Programme), the specific objective of this joint programme proposal is to equip UN country teams with thenecessary tools and information to:

  • Support governments in transforming their buildings and construction sector, particularly the housing sector, in a resource efficient, low carbon and climate resilient manner, through coherent policy support and results-focused programming.
  • Raise awareness and strengthen the capacity of national stakeholders on sustainable buildings and construction related benefits and opportunities with an emphasis on material efficiency.
  • Contribute through the UN country presence to develop and strengthen the productive links among construction sector stakeholders for the efficient use of resources from a circular economy perspective.

The different outputs and activities planned in this proposal are expected to result in (i) strengthened national commitments and objectives for sustainable buildings and construction in two pilot countries and (ii) strengthened technical resources for UNCTs to support governments in mainstreaming sustainability, resource efficiency, and climate change in the buildings and construction sector to achieve the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement. Moreover, it is expected that UNCTs, supported by the participating UN organizations (PUNOs), have enhanced capacities to utilize the potential of the buildings and construction sector to raise resources for the implementation of national sustainable development plans and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). In view of the importance of procurement in buildings and construction projects, the programme will include relevant information for sustainable procurement in the guidance developed and technical support provided in the pilot countries.
