International Forum on Urban Policy for Sustainable Development Goals

The forum will discuss how to facilitate cities in achieving the SDGs, and will identify practical approaches for sharing policy experiences, best practices, as well as innovative technologies among city stakeholders.

The event is being held jointly with the UNESCAP and CityNet (The Regional Network of Local Authorities for the Management of Human Settlements) to discuss how to put into practice sustainable development goals (SDGS) agreed to by the heads of 190 countries at the UN in September 2015 and how to cooperate with each other at a city level.

It is expected that attendees will introduce their diverse urban policies, technologies, and knowhow during the event and that the program for sharing the SMG’s successful policies with cities in other countries will be accelerated during the event.
