In Transport

The work of the Share the Road Programme is supported by a host of partners who are as committed to investing in pedestrians and cyclists as much as we are and have the commitment to make our programme a success. Our partnership arrangements include joint research and events, formal partnerships and technical assistance.

UN Habitat

The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-HABITAT, is the United Nations agency for human settlements.  It is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all.
