Partners: UCLG and Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments for Post-2015 Development Agenda towards Habitat-III
Based on the outcomes of the negotiations since Rio+20 in 2012, the UN Post-2015 Summit to be held in September 2015 is expected to provide inspirational guidelines for policy priorities on global sustainable development in the next couple of decades. The expectation is that a set of sustainable development goals will be accepted from all nations to replace the Millenium Development Goals and to guide policy development and implementationin all countries. Through the proposed Goal 11 on making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable, the global advocacy of local and subnational governments’ networks and their partners succeeded to highlight the need for an integrated and transformative sustainability vision for the urban world of the 21st Century.
The Habitat-III Conference to be held in October 2016 in Quito will then guide the translation of all these global progresses into the vision of the New Urban Agenda.
