Promoting Inclusive Cities and Shared Development

The United Nations has designated every 31st of October as World Cities Day to promote the international community’s interest in global urbanization, and to push forward cooperation among countries in contributing to sustainable urban development around the world.

World Cities Day 2016 will be celebrated under the theme Inclusive Cities, Shared Development highlighting the significant role of urbanization as a source of global development and social inclusion. This year’s theme is embraced by the action and implementation of the New Urban Agenda, which is putting the topic of inclusive cities as one of the main pillars for the urban shift.

As a centre of learning in Africa, MILE advocates for Inclusive Cities having hosted learning events to promote city to city learning for local government practitioners.

World Cities Day marks the end of Urban October month of celebrations and this year it is happening after the resounding success of the Habitat III Conference.
