Description

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
 Co-organizers: Ford Foundation 
Participants of this workshop will engage in a thematic dialogue around the issues of affordable housing and spatial development, unpacking knotty problems such as gentrification, social segregation, and access to services.
This workshop, led by the OECD in partnership with the Ford Foundation and UCLG, will highlight emerging evidence on urban inequalities from the forthcoming OECD report, Making Cities Work for All, and engage leaders from the global coalition of Champion Mayors for Inclusive Growth, who are part of the OECD Inclusive Growth in Cities Initiative. The policy discussion will be framed by the principles outlined in the New York Proposal for Inclusive Growth in Cities and the forthcoming Paris Action Plan [to be launched in November 2016].
