GAP consists of 16 Partner Constituent Groups (PCG) with members from the United Nations’ nine major groups, the Habitat Agenda Partners and other relevant stakeholders. PCGs are involved with the advancement of new ideas and methodologies in the field of sustainable urbanization and human settlement development, including but not limited to, public spaces and streets, urban transport and mobility, climate change and environment, energy, housing and slum upgrading, safety and security in cities.
