OECD work on Cities

OECD events at 10th World Urban Forum (WUF)

 

8-13 February 2020 Abu Dhabi 

The World Urban Forum (WUF) was established in 2001 by the United Nations to address one of the most pressing issues facing the world today: rapid urbanization and its impact on communities, cities, economies, climate change and policies. Convened by UN-Habitat, the Forum is a high level, open and inclusive platform for addressing the challenges of sustainable urbanization.

The OECD contributed to this important event through a series of side events, publications, and by taking part in a number of workshops, seminars and other events throughout the conference.
