The WUF9 dialogues will aim to focus the attention on policy action areas identified in the strategic delivery of the New Urban Agenda, mainly in the UN-Habitat Action Framework of the Implementation of the New Urban Agenda (AFINUA), but also in other key aspects on the way cities are being re-thought and reimagined in line with the New Urban Agenda and innovative means that are being deployed to achieve its effective implementation.

The WUF9 Dialogues intend to collect inputs on key aspects of sustainable urbanization directly related to the main action areas. These dialogues will explore and deepen the knowledge on:

  • Innovations that have been introduced since 2015 for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, especially after the adoption of the New Urban Agenda;
  • Existing and new partnerships built to achieve results in each of these areas;
  • Tools and indicators introduced in each of these areas for capacity development and monitoring;
  • Examples (e.g. urban solutions) of integrated approach in each of the areas, as well as solutions for local implementation;
  • Inclusive approaches to age and gender responsiveness and human rights mainstreaming in each area.
