Report of the Tenth Session of the World Urban Forum
As WUF10 affirmed, culture is a vital component of local identity, including heritage, creativity and diversity. Urbanisation needs to be planned, designed and managed to enhance this. Indeed, culture can be considered as the fourth pillar of sustainable development.
This report details the scope and nature of participation by diverse stakeholders at the Forum. It shares insights and recommendations generated from over 500 Forum events, including dialogues, roundtables and special sessions, about creative ways of driving people-centred development that is inclusive, leaves no one behind, and mainstreams culture into strategic urban planning.
