Multi-Level Urban Forums: A Guide 2024 Urban Forums are critical and inclusive platforms to domesticate and localize global agendas
and to advance evidence-based policymaking and review, as well as communicating policy
outcomes and progress. They provide a valuable policy feedback loop.
The main objective of the Multi-level Urban Forums Guide is to strengthen the role of multilevel Urban Forums to become platforms for urban policy dialogue, stakeholder engagement, resource mobilization and other concerted actions towards sustainable urban development.
The urban forums can provide an opportunity for UN-Habitat to strategically support countries by creating synergies at subnational, national, sub regional and regional levels to optimize the benefits of rapid urbanization and overcome its challenges. Additionally, these guidelines for structuring urban forums will continually be refined to ensure inclusivity and co-creation, foster adequate implementation and urban policy engagement at all relevant levels.
