Global taskeforce

The Global Taskforce of UCLG held on 9th and 10th February a meeting to provide inputs to the preparatory process of Habitat III (United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development), where Committee on Decentralisation and Local Self-Government participated.

UCLG, along with LSE Cities, lead one of the ten policy units that will be discussed at Habitat III, in particular the unit 4 on urban governance, capacity and institutional development. These policy units aim to gather maximum experience to further innovative research and analysis on each thematic area, identifying good practices for each area of the New Agenda Urbana.

In the context of Habitat III, Barcelona will host next 4 and 5 April in this city a thematic high-level meeting on public spaces to discuss the New Urban Agenda and to provide policy recommendations on urban development.
