The 16th Annual Session of Global Forum on Human Settlements (GFHS 2021) will be held on the theme: 'Accelerate Green Transformation and Innovation towards Healthy, Resilient and Carbon-neutral Cities'.
The event focuses on sustainable cities and human settlements and will take place as an observance of World Cities Day, which takes place annually on 31 October. The Forum will address how cities can use green recovery as an opportunity to kick-start a green transformation and drive innovation at all levels and across all sectors, thus enhancing urban safety, resilience and inclusiveness, boosting green growth, and achieving coordinated, healthy, and high-quality sustainable urban development.
The Forum is co-organized by the Global Forum on Human Settlements (GFHS), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the UN Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD), the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
