Second Forum of Mayors 2022
by United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) | Dates: 4-5 April 2022
At its 80th session the UNECE Committee on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management agreed to dedicate one of the three days of the Committee session to discussions concerning, and involving the participation of, local authorities, in particular mayors, following a similar format to the Day of Cities. The Forum of Mayors will be organized on the first day of the Committee session and focus on a specific thematic issue related to sustainable urban development, housing and land management.
It also invited the Forum to transmit its recommendations on how to address the challenges that local authorities/governments face in achieving sustainable urban development, housing and land management to the Committee in the context of assisting the Committee in its activities in the ECE region.
It further invited the Forum to transmit its recommendations relevant to other ECE bodies to the relevant bodies for information and possible consideration (e.g., Committee on Sustainable Energy, Inland Transport Committee, etc.).
In addition, the Forum of Mayors is a platform for on-going exchange and mutual learning where Mayors will present their efforts to tackle challenges in their cities. Cities will learn from each other’s best practices in the areas of housing and climate-neutral buildings, green cities and nature-based solutions, sustainable urban transport and safer roads, and smart urban development solutions.
