The UN-Habitat Assembly is the world’s highest level decision-making body on urbanization. All 193 member states of the UN are members. The Assembly is expected to make decisions and pass resolutions that will frame the global urbanization agenda, look at major trends, norms and standards related to human settlements and sustainable urbanization and advise on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals and other global agendas. The Assembly will meet every four years.
The first session of the UN-Habitat Assembly will take place on 27 – 31 May 2019 and will attract over 2,000 international delegates.
The theme is “Innovation for a better quality of life in Cities and Communities” with the sub theme: “Accelerated implementation of the New Urban Agenda towards achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals”
An Urban Solutions Expo promoting innovative and sustainable solutions for the challenges facing cities and communities will take place in support of the theme. UN-Habitat invites governments, local authorities, UN agencies, international organizations, private sector, civil society, academia and other stakeholders to present innovative projects, establish connections and look at how we can reshape the future of our cities and communities.
