An array of roundtable meetings will be held by peer groups – ministers, mayors, parliamentarians, partner universities, business entities, urban researchers, Habitat professionals, women and youth groups, civil society organizations and others.  They will deliberate on a set of subjects that revolve around the linkages between sustainable urbanization and the development agenda in relation to the theme. The roundtables provide the opportunity for focused discussions, sharing of lessons learned, exchanging of urban solutions, collecting key reflections and the way forward to the implementation of the topic discussed. Most of these meetings are open to the public, access to some, such as the ministerial sessions, mayors and parliamentarians could be restricted.
