This roundtable will bring together ministers and senior representatives of national governments and regional political bodies to elevate the debate on sustainable urbanization to accelerate the implementation of the New Urban Agenda in support of the Sustainable Development Goals and other global agendas.
This roundtable is expected to come up with a set of forward-looking urban policy measures to transform our cities and human settlements towards a sustainable urban future, particularly for the post COVID-19 era, which can be adapted and replicated at different levels and in different contexts.
