Delivering The Sdg’s and the draft New Urban Agenda: Entry points and recommended principles and actions
The draft New Urban Agenda (10th September 2016) is being draft to guide the United Nations system-wide approach to sustainable urbanization post the 2015 development agenda. Its broad arguments, principles and approaches reflect UN-Habitat’s research (such as the global reports) plus the Agency’s extensive practical experience in urban development. In essence, it argues that there are ‘better’ ways of achieving inclusive, transformative urbanization than others – and these approaches involve adopting certain sustainable and inclusive principles and actions based on a human rights based approach (13a, 28).
