  • The ninth session of the World Urban Forum (WUF9) was held from 7-13, February in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The session mobilized a large number of urban actors in national governments, subnational and local governments, civil society, private sector and academia to share knowledge and solutions for sustainable urban development.

    The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), to be held 9-18 July 2018 at UNHQ, is the central platform for reviewing progress on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the global level. The theme of the 2018 HLPF is "Transformation Towards Sustainable and Resilient Societies".

    Given the World Urban Forum's alignment with the theme of the 2018 HLPF, it is an opportune moment to engage urban actors to participate in the preparation and activities of the 2018 HLPF, and integrate outputs from the WUF into the 2018 HLPF session. With this background, UN DESA, Division for Sustainable Development (DESA-DSD) and the UN Office of Sustainable Development (UNOSD) held two consecutive complementary side events at the Ninth session of the World Urban Forum (WUF9) on Sunday 11 February, from 11:00am to 13:00.

    DESA-DSD's side event provided an overview of the upcoming High-Level Political Forum and preparatory events, with a focus on opportunities for cities and local authorities to engage, while the side event organized by UNOSD focused on providing substantive input to the discussion on SDG 11 and its interlinkages to the other SDGs that will under review at the 2018 High-Level Political Forum (HLPF).
