Session |
Thu, 18/10/2018 - 13:00 to 14:30

The Regional Action Plan for the implementation of the New Urban Agenda reinforces the importance of urban legislation together with robust rules and regulations to balance social interests and promote spatial inclusion in a way that guarantees human rights in cities. The seminar "Strengthening the Implementation of the New Urban Agenda through Urban Legislation" sought to present the regional context of urban frameworks and legislations post-Habitat III, providing examples of successful cases and recommendations for urban legal instruments that have managed to contribute to the development of inclusive, resilient and sustainable cities in Latin America and the Caribbean. The event also presented practical tools for the management of knowledge and political commitments to advance towards this agenda.

This event was organized by the Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of UN-Habitat, the Hub of UN-Habitat for the Andean countries under the auspices of the Ministry of Public Works of Spain. The invited panelists represented different entities thus offering diverse points of view that enriched the dialogue. The session’s panelists were decision and policy makers, researchers, representatives of accountability institutions, and representatives from international cooperation agencies.
