The Dialogue wants to bring a contribution from both national and territorial governmental levels; and to support the preparations to HLPF by collecting experiences, comparing methodologies, sharing the challenges of implementation and monitoring of SDG11. The report of the meeting focusing on the multi level governance aspects of SDG11 will be presented at the Local and Regional Governments' Forum (16th July, NYC).  Among the themes that will be addressed: the right to the city, opportunities for all, multilevel governance and resilient cities.
