Summary

Global milestones such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda have provided opportunities and support for member states to address urbanization.

Visible national-level efforts geared towards responding to the challenges and opportunities of the urban world include the prioritization of development frameworks for infrastructure, housing, health, education, climate change, and women's and children's rights.

In most cases these efforts remain an issue fully managed by the national government, but the 2030 Agenda can only be achieved if lawmakers and decision-makers support initiatives that involve all actors, including non-governmental entities. The roundtable will look at global efforts currently underway to strengthen the role of all partners.

Sub Title

Aligned policy and decision-making processes in transforming cities and commutates for a better urban future

Guiding Questions for discussions

● How can parliamentarians and other policy makers provide recommendations on the New Urban Agenda into government policies?
● How can parliamentarians ensure alignment of government priority areas of development to global level commitments?
● What effective initiatives can parliamentarians and policy makers implement to support monitoring of progress made by governments in advancing the 2030 Agenda?
