LSE Cities to lead WUF9 event on urban governance

8 February 2018

LSE Cities, in partnership with UCLG and UN-Habitat, will lead a networking event at the World Urban Forum (WUF) in Kuala Lumpur on 10 February 2018. “Towards a New Urban Governance Observatory” aims to identify the key aspects that need to be taken into account when creating an indicator facility for monitoring changes in urban and metropolitan governance over the next 10-20 years. This builds on the experience gathered in coordinating one of ten Habitat III Policy Units on Urban Governance, Capacity and Institutional Development during the preparations of the New Urban Agenda, the global Urban Governance Survey covering 127 cities, and the on-going New Urban Governance research project. Philipp Rode, Executive Director of LSE Cities, will draw on this research in his presentation.
