The world is urbanizing quickly, and cities and local governments are facing times of change while having the continued responsibility to ensure a safe and prosperous urban environment that offers a high quality of life for its people and create equal opportunities for all. Different urban stakeholders and agents of change are introducing new ideas, innovative approaches and solutions to cope with the challenges that we face in the 21st Century. Universities, think tanks and research institutions are part and parcel of this effort. I am pleased to note the establishment of cooperation between UN-Habitat and various groups of scholars and academic researchers, representing multiple institutions, to develop innovations in education, urban research and city projects. This will ultimately nurture a new generation of urban managers. More info →
