[Webinar] Beyond Habitat III — What comes next?

At the UN’s Habitat III summit last month in Quito, Ecuador, nations agreed to a 20-year strategy for sustainable urbanization known as the New Urban Agenda. What comes next? What actions require national governments to lead and what can city leaders and civil society do on their own? How does implementation of the New Urban Agenda relate to other global frameworks like the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris climate agreement? Where does the “urban movement” go from here? Join Citiscope for a webinar to discuss these issues and more.
