World Urban Forum 9
From Wednesday 07 February 2018
To Tuesday 13 February 2018

The Ninth Session of the World Urban Forum will be the first session to focus on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda adopted in Habitat III.

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 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.

The theme 'Cities 2030 – Cities for All: Implementing the New Urban Agenda', is geared to emphasise the  New Urban Agenda as a tool and accelerator for achieving Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, and thus will be the first session to focus on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda adopted in Habitat III.

Specifically, the Forum's four goals are to: 

  1. Raise awareness of sustainable urbanization among stakeholders and constituencies, including the general public, 
  2. Improve the collective knowledge of sustainable urban development through inclusive open debates, sharing of lessons learned and the exchange of urban solutions and good policies, 
  3. Increase coordination and cooperation between different stakeholders and constituencies for the advancement and implementation of sustainable urbanization, and 
  4. Provide a platform to incorporate the inputs of multilateral organizations and stakeholders into the reporting of the implementation of the New Urban Agenda.
