OECD Principles on Urban Policy
The OECD Principles on Urban Policy consolidate the lessons from the past 20+ years of work on cities to guide policymakers in building smart, sustainable and inclusive cities.
The OECD Principles on Urban Policy were co-developed with a diverse range of stakeholders, including international organisations, development banks, networks of cities and local governments, research institutes and academia, and the private sector.
The Principles were welcomed by Mayors and Ministers during the 7th OECD Roundtable of Mayors and Ministers on 19 March 2019 in Athens, Greece. Mayors, Ministers and partner institutions will support the implementation of the Principles through the Athens Pledge.
