Local authorities, non-governmental
and international organizations, civil society and academics all have an important
role to play in the development of cities in a more equitable and sustainable
manner and in meeting the demand for shelter, livelihood opportunities, education,
water, sanitation, mobility, social equity and most importantly a good quality
of life for all urban residents. The aim of this meeting is to exchange experiences,
knowledge and tools with other stakeholders and to collectively synthesise the
lesson learnt from ‘good practices’ for replication, up-scaling and institutionalization,
so that we may leave our cities as better places for the future generations.
