UN High-level Meeting

On the eve of the High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda, key Commonwealth partners in close collaboration with The Prince’s Foundation and the Government of Rwanda, hosted a virtual side event in support of the Call to Action on Sustainable Urbanisation across the Commonwealth.

Within the overarching context of the New Urban Agenda, the discussion focused on partnerships for inclusive delivery around the three priority areas set out in the Call to Action, namely:

  • The imperative of putting a greater focus on sustainable urbanisation in the Commonwealth. 
  • Strengthening the Commonwealth dialogue to define and implement a new way of working towards sustainable urbanisation.  
  • Commitment to a new initiative and practical action towards sustainable urbanisation.

See video at the top of this page to access the recording of the 1-hour event.
