Environment, Population and Urbanization
The Environment, Population and Urbanization Cluster deals with cross-cutting and sectoral issues and assists the AU Commission and other African organizations in the formulation and implementation of their environmental population and urbanization policies. In addition, it works to increase joint projects and collaborative efforts from UN support and AU system organization in support of the African Union and its NEPAD programme. The objectives are to address the challenges of growing populations and movement of people; rapid growth of towns; environmental degradation and pollution; and the lack of demographic statistics.
