The Emirate of Abu Dhabi will host the tenth session of the World Urban Forum (WUF10) from 8 to 13 February 2020 under the theme: Cities of Opportunities: Connecting Culture and Innovation. Organized and convened by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the World Urban Forum is one of the most inclusive gatherings on the international arena. This, combined with high-level participation, makes it a unique United Nations conference. The forum is expected to attract over 20,000 local and international delegates.
The Forum’s objectives are to
- raise awareness of sustainable urbanization among stakeholders and constituencies, including the general public;
- improve the collective knowledge of sustainable urban development through inclusive open debates, sharing of lessons learned and the exchange of best practices and good policies;
- and increase coordination and cooperation between different stakeholders and constituencies for the advancement and implementation of sustainable urbanization.
To illustrate the WUF10 theme, an Urban Expo promoting innovative and sustainable solutions for the challenges facing cities and communities will take place throughout the Forum. GLTN encourages our partners to present and display their projects that reshape the future of cities and communities.
The deadline to apply for exhibition space is 15 November 2019.
The Forum will feature numerous Side Events, providing a platform for participants to showcase or present their latest innovations or best practices. Events will include Dialogues, High-Level Roundtables, Assemblies, and Stakeholder Roundtables.
These events are an excellent opportunity for GLTN partners to highlight their innovative work around land tenures and network with relevant experts and decision makers. As land tenure and governance is an important part of achieving sustainable urbanization, we encourage GLTN Partners to apply for different events.
The deadline to apply for organizing a Side Event is 14 October 2019.
Registration is free and will be available on the Forum’s website.
