UN-Habitat and New York University’s Marron Institute of Urban Management are organising a five-day course for city leaders to develop skills and exposure to best practices in metropolitan finance and policy making in municipalities, metropolis, and megacities.

The course, which will be in the form of interactive lectures and project-oriented workshops, will run from 15 July to 19 July 2019 at New York University (NY, USA).

The course aims to provide an overview of various aspects of metropolitan economy and finance. It will foster conversations between mayors, senior technical officers, finance officials, and urban planning experts on how to design, finance, and implement projects to effectively manage urban growth and act in a new metropolitan scale.
