A new electronic platform allowing people from all over the world to contribute to the debates around the New Urban Agenda has been launched as part of the activities leading up to the Habitat III conference in October 2016.

The Urban Dialogues is hosting a series of e-discussions until 31 July with the aim of integrating all voices and bringing forward new and emerging thinking in the elaboration of the New Urban Agenda.

The thematic consultations will focus on the following six areas: social cohesion and equity; urban frameworks; spatial development; urban economy; urban ecology and environment, and; urban housing and basic services.

To inform the discussions, the Habitat III Secretariat has coordinated the production of issue papers around each theme which will guide discussants on the key aspects of the issue and areas of consideration for the conference.

Habitat III – the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development – will take place from 17-20 October 2016 in Quito, Ecuador.
