Social Cohesion & Equity

Urban Frameworks

Spatial Development

Urban Economy

The Urban Frameworks area covers the following thematic: Urban rules and legislation, urban governance and Municipal finance.

As an outcome of the Urban Dialogues, a report will be published on the UN-Habitat, distributed to all Member States and stakeholders and will constitute another piece of the background information for the Policy Units work.
We encourage our cities to join and participate at Habitat III Urban dialogues and on Twitter using the hashtags #H3Urbandialogues #Habitat and post your comments or background document on-line.
The more we engage key people with relevant discussions, the better the quality of the on-line discussion will be.  

We would be pleased if you would share your comments and feedback also with us. This would give us the chance to gather your opinions and to incorporate them into the consolidated statement from Metropolis that will be prepared in the framework of the Berlin-led activity PrepCity.
