India unanimously elected as President of UN-Habitat

India has been unanimously elected as the President of UN-Habitat, an organ of the United Nations Organisation. The UN-Habitat promotes socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements across the world. Since the UN-Habitat came into being in 1978, it is only the third time that India has been elected to lead this important organization after 2007 and 1988.
