In advance of the global UN conference on cities, HABITAT III, negotiators have come to terms on a new document that will define what cities should become in the SDG era — a New Urban Agenda. Cities are the subject of Goal 11, but they also must reckon with all the other SDGs, too. And now they have a (draft) guidance document to help them do it. The Agenda — which covers nearly every dimension of urban development you can imagine — is expected to be agreed at the conference in Quito, Ecuador, 17-20 October.

Here’s an article that briefs you on the New Urban Agenda:
