From February 7-13, 2018, The Ninth Session of the World Urban Forum convenes in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, bringing leaders and organizations from a wide range of sectors together to focus on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda adopted at the Habitat III conference in October 2016.
This week, we’ve launched two new resources – a Global Prospectus and an Asia Pacific Prospectus – that outline investment and partnership opportunities throughout the world and in the Asia Pacific region. Explore them to see how our member cities are moving to implement initiatives in their urban resilience strategies.
