Plenary - Links between the 2030 Agenda and the New Urban Agenda

13 october
14.00 to 15.30
Venue: 
Grand Salon

Description

Over the span of one year, the international community will have adopted three ambitious agendas; the 2030 Agenda, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and, next October in Quito, the New Urban Agenda. Local and regional governments have strongly advocated for these agendas. In a fast-urbanizing world, they argued that the SDGs need to further take the urban and territorial dimensions of sustainable development into account – going well beyond Goal 11 – and that the New Urban Agenda should be fully embedded in the achievement of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. Local and regional governments have shown that they are essential for the achievement of these agendas but that their role need to be redefined to ensure adequate governance and follow-up at national and global levels.
