The event will offer an opportunity to synthesize innovative approaches and actions to support sustainable urban development in the context of the New Urban Agenda (NUA) and the decade of action for the SDGs.
The UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and Suwon City, are co-organizing the event with the partnership of the Republic of Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport and in cooperation with the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), Habitat for Humanity International, and CityNet.
