City2City

The New Urban Agenda aims to ensure that the cities of today and tomorrow offer an inclusive and sustainable future for all. The UNDP Sustainable Urbanisation Strategy lays out the support which UNDP as a global development organisation can provide to help achieve that.

New Urban Agenda

The New Urban Agenda - adopted at the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) in Quito, Ecuador, on 20 October 2016 - presents a paradigm shift based on the science of cities. It lays out standards and principles for the planning, construction, development, management, and improvement of urban areas. It has five main pillars of implementation: national urban policies, urban legislation and regulations, urban planning and design, local economy and municipal finance, and local implementation.
