The 9th World Urban Forum (February 7~13, Kuala Lumpur)

The 9th World Urban Forum (February 7~13, Kuala Lumpur) 

The World Urban Forum(WUF) will be the first session to focus on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda(NUA) adopted in Habitat III last year. In the New Urban Agenda, participating States request the report of the implementation of the Agenda to incorporate, to the extent possible, the inputs of multilateral organizations, civil society, the private sector and academia and to build on existing platforms such as the World Urban Forum.

WUF9 will be an instrumental to substantively feed into the inputs for the first report of the implementation of the New Urban Agenda. The Forum will also contribute to global mobilization towards advocating for the common vision on sustainable urban development in advancing on the achievement of the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Since the SSE is mentioned in NUA as the important means of achieving more sustainable and inclusive local development, many of GSEF members and local governments will participate in the upcoming forum in Kuala Lumpur. The registration is open now. For more information on its programs and schedules, you may visit the forum’s official website:
