The meeting takes place every 20 years, and its action-oriented outcome, known as the New Urban Agenda, will be finalized this week. It has 175 items that center around two core objectives: inclusive urbanism and sustainable urbanism.
The Agenda demands action at all layers of government, civil society, business and the private sector, to help lift up the global Sustainable Development Goals (aka SDGs) geared towards 2030.
