IFSW has played an increasingly active role in the work of UN Habitat. This included active participation in the NGO caucus at the Habitat Governing Council meeting in April 2009.
Habitat is based in Nairobi and the main IFSW representative is Charles Mbugua, President for Africa. He has taken part in 2 recent Habitat events. The most recent was the governing council and the previous event was the World Urban Forum in Nanjing, China in December 2008 (see IFSW report below).
