URBAN DIALOGUE ON FINANCING URBAN DEVELOPMENT OPEN UNTIL 6 MARCH
2016 marks the year of the Habitat III Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development in October in Ecuador. In the ongoing process of drafting a New Urban Agenda, you can add your voice in shaping future policies of the cities where you live.
Local authorities all over the world are playing an increasingly important role in the delivery of fundamental basic public services. However, they are also facing huge challenges, in particular the widening gap between the availability of financial resources and municipal expenditure needs.
From now until Sunday, 6 March, individuals and organizations have the opportunity to contribute their input on the topic of Financing Urban Development.
During this online discussion, participants are encouraged to discuss how urban authorities in developing countries can generate increased revenue from local revenue sources, deliver better urban services and planned city extensions.
The urban dialogue on Financing Urban Development highlights both the challenges and opportunities cities face in terms of urban growth public services.
