The World Urban Forum (WUF) is a non-legislative technical forum convened by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) held since 2002.
The Forum gathers a wide range of experts from every walk of life. It is recognized as the foremost global arena for interaction among policymakers, local government leaders, non-governmental organizations and expert practitioners in the field of sustainable urban development and human settlements.
The Ninth Session of the World Urban Forum (WUF9) will be the first chance to focus on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda adopted in Habitat III.
WUF9 will contribute to global mobilization towards the common vision on sustainable urban development in advancing Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
WUF9 is one of the most open gatherings in the international arena for exchanging views and experiences on urban challenges.
