Organized and convened by UN-Habitat, the World Urban Forum has become the foremost international gathering for exchanging views and experiences on sustainable urbanization in all its ramifications. The tenth session of the World Urban Forum (WUF10) was held in Abu Dhabi 08-13 February with the theme Cities of Opportunities: Connecting Culture And Innovation.
To kick off the Decade of Action, WUF10 has provided a launching ground for all parties to commit to specific actions to contribute to the SDGs and sustainable urban development. The Abu Dhabi Declared Actions includes commitments from international organizations, national, local and regional governments, the private sector, civil society, academia and others for the next two years and beyond to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agreed by world leaders in 2015.
This space offers the opportunity for partners and participants alike to declare their actions and contribute to the common goal of accelerating the achievement of sustainable urban development for all.
Declared Actions are strategic level goals that will result from the implementation of new initiatives from a variety of institutions and actors. These strategic goals should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound.
