AGENDA

Global State of Metropolis 2020 - Experts Group Meeting #2

UN-Habitat will publish, in October 2020, the report "Global State of Metropolis", five years after the Montréal Declaration, in order to take stock of the new metropolitan reality around the world, and to address the major challenges of metropolitan management and development in terms of policy formulation, governance, planning, and financing of urban development. With this project, UN-Habitat will strengthen the knowledge and research on metropolitan subjects as well as the cooperation for sustainable metropolitan development through existing and new platforms as established in paragraph 41 of the Montreal Declaration. 

Seizing the gatherings of the World Urban Forum 10, the second Experts Group Meeting will give continuity to the international dialogue between development actors that took place at the first meeting last year hosted by the Metropolitan Area of Valle de Aburrá (AMVA), bringing together development actors to propose and define conceptual approaches, methodologies, contents, case studies and inspiring experiences for structuring a global report on metropolitan management and development.
