The New Urban Agenda Platform

The New Urban Agenda Platform is the knowledge portal for gathering voluntary reports, best practices, and data - both quantitative and qualitative, for reviewing the progress made in implementing the New Urban Agenda to achieve the 2030 Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals. This platform is for national governments, subnational governments, local authorities, civil societies, UN entities, private sector, regional organizations and all other key stakeholders to voluntarily share their contributions to the implementation of the global agenda from the global, regional, national and local level. A one-stop shop for both reporting and learning, the platform supports knowledge exchange, builds interaction and supports capacity development to establish communities of practice for sustainable urbanization development.

The New Urban Agenda call for multi-stakeholder partnerships

Thematic multi stakeholder and cross-sectoral alliances involving governments and related institutions at all levels, UN agencies, funds and programmes, civil society, private sector, academia, and other stakeholders are essential for achievement of SDGs and the New Urban Agenda. The dearth of information and data on SDG 11 and other urban related SDGs and the New Urban Agenda calls for collaboration, pulling together and standardization of data from different sources. Without this, assessment of implementation of these global agendas and regional frameworks will be difficult.

The Urban Agenda Platform facilitates the sharing of experiences, best practices, and establishment of alliances for increased action in coming decade.
