The National Scroll of Honour Award is to recognize public and private organisations as well as individuals who have made great contributions to the sustainable development of human settlements in Malaysia. The award is parallel to the UN-Habitat Scroll of Honour Award that was launched by UN-Habitat in 1989 and currently the most prestigious human settlements award in the world.
Its aim is to acknowledge initiatives which have made outstanding contributions in various fields, such as shelter provision, highlighting the plight of the homeless, leadership in post conflict reconstruction, and improving living conditions and providing innovative solutions in providing housing for the needful people and efforts towards improving the quality of urban life.
