The meeting will discuss, inter alia, best practices, success stories in relation to implementation of the New Urban Agenda. It will also address the measures contained in the Report from the Secretary General’s Independent Panel to Assess, Enhance Effectiveness of UN-Habitat after Adoption of New Urban Agenda, which is expected to be published by end July 2017.
