National Urban Forum: Towards a National Urban Policy

When: 20 Jun
09.15-16.30

Location: Bonniers Konsthall

Anna Graaf, Director Sustainability at White, is one of the panelists during the Swedish independent think tank Global Utmaning (Global Challenge) full-day conference on Localizing Global Agendas. The conference will highlight success factors and strategies to deliver on Sustainable Development Goals, and particularly how national policies can serve as tools for local implementation.

The overall objective of the National Urban Forum is to raise the profile of local implementation of the global agendas at the country level towards improved sustainable urbanization strategies, policies and programs, through a highly participative format strongly encouraging feedback and input from all attendees. The expected outcomes of the forum are knowledge base building – capacity building, tools and national support for implementation, engagement – a permanent multi-stakeholder platform, awareness raising – putting the local and urban dimensions at the centre of national priorities, and policy advice – elaborating on a National Urban Policy. The focus of this National Urban Forum will be the multi-stakeholder formulation of a National Urban Policy. It will serve as input to the Governments’ initiatives and be a platform for safeguarding the adequacy and implementation of policy at the local level.
