SIDE EVENTS AT THE
WORLD URBAN FORUM 9
UN-Habitat welcomes applications for organizing side events at the Ninth session of the World Urban Forum to be held from 7 to 13 February 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Side events are one hour long and should focus on concrete examples of the implementation of the New Urban Agenda such as projects, research, data, etc. They are an opportunity to share data, knowledge and initiatives in an effort to advance the sustainable urban development in cities and towns around the globe. The main topic of the side event should be related to the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The organization holding the side event is responsible for its financing. It is a pre-requisite that organizers have sufficient funds to carry out the event, including own travel and accommodation, if the event is selected. Only one side event per organization will be accepted for further selection process.
Please note that the WUF Secretariat may follow-up on further details if required.
There are no application fees.
Evaluation of received applications will be based on the set criteria for side events.
