National Urban Policy Thematic sessions

May 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

A NUP can act as a policy “umbrella” to integrate and create synergies between sectoral policies that shape towns and cities of all sizes, therefore working to address key opportunities and challenges in cities. The thematic sessions will aim to demonstrate the important linkages and intersections between NUP and different thematic areas and will focus on some of the key areas and topics that can be addressed through NUP.

Examples of these key topics are: the promotion of smart cities, land management and markets, climate change and green growth in cities, data generation on cities and population dynamics, the implication of the Agenda 2030 for cities, urban-rural linkages, gender, youth, diversity and migration, slum upgrading, etc. The sessions will be held in parallel and led by key experts and partner institutions and will facilitate peer to peer exchange and learning on selected thematic topics.
