This Background Report sets out the reasoned justification behind the Habitat Professional Forum 2022 Roadmap for a Just and Regenerative Recovery, which is a response to the ongoing global health crisis from the perspective of human settlements professionals. The Roadmap sets out twenty-two propositions for harnessing the collective potential contribution of the human settlement professions who are partners in the Habitat Professionals. These propositions are a call to change the way we plan and manage our cities and regions, and to make them fit for purpose in the Post-Covid World. If acted upon, these Propositions will help align the separate and disparate actions of government at all levels and link policies to delivery mechanisms.
