New Urban Agenda

The 4th South Asian Cities Summit 2018

The New Urban Agenda is a theme of unprecedented global consultation and dialogue, in which local and regional governments have actively participated. It will guide and channelize the efforts around urbanization for the next 20 years. The NUA will also lay the groundwork for policies and approaches that will shape the future of cities. With more than 50% of the world’s population presently living in urban areas, all cities are facing challenges to meet the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) over the next 15 years.

Realising this potential and with a holistic view in providing sustainable & livable solutions for cities, All India Institute of Local Self-Government is organising the South Asian Cities Summit 2018 with the theme of “New Urban and Localising SDGs”.

The Summit will focus on the perspective of what needs to be done at city level to attain the SDGs and assess whether South Asian cities have required data base and capacity to generate, analyze and use city performance results at highly disaggregated level in the city to improve performance and attain SDG required outcomes by 2030.

AIILSG had played a key role through its technical support to Indian cities and provided a regular forum for consultation and various on-going programmes. AIILSG proposes to bring out relevance of outcome-oriented approach, based on work being implemented in various cities of India, which will be useful in context of SDGs shifting focus from output to outcome deliverables.
