Die Herausforderung


Angesichts des beispiellosen Wachstums unserer Städte und Gemeinden ist die Urbanisierung eine der dringendsten Herausforderungen für die globale Gemeinschaft im 21. Jahrhundert. Die nachhaltige Verbesserung urbaner Gebiete ist entscheidend, um nachhaltige Ergebnisse für unsere Gesellschaft zu erzielen. Arcadis ist gut aufgestellt, um UN-Habitat dabei zu unterstützen, diese dringende Herausforderung anzugehen.


Shelter Program activities


The Shelter program activities focus on three main activities, the Shelter Academy, the Shelter missions, and the Shelter workshops.


Shelter missions


Arcadians take part in Shelter missions to address challenges in the developing world. These efforts are in support of specific UN-Habitat missions, where our experts can share knowledge, offer training, capacity building sessions, and provide theoretical and technical support.


Shelter Academy


The Shelter Academy is an annual program of a week in which high-level local officials from Asia, Africa, and Latin America will make an implementation and action plan looking at case studies on climate adaptation and mitigation in their region. They do this with the help of Arcadis experts, workshops and concrete examples of Arcadis’ projects worldwide. The Academy promotes learning and capacity building on the topic of cities and climate change and fosters a meaningful dialogue on how cities are responding to these challenges.


Shelter workshops


We also organize a number of different Shelter workshops each year. This includes internal workshops to educate our people about the Shelter Program and our partnership with UN-Habitat. We also send experts to participate in Urban Thinkers Campuses, an initiative within UN-Habitat’s World Urban Campaign.
