The Conference gathered more than 30,000 accredited participants, and involved more than 150,000 people in the entire preparatory process including regional and thematic meetings, negotiations, meetings with stakeholders, and the preparation of policy papers amongst others. The New Urban Agenda brings with it many years of UN-Habitat’s combined cumulative experience in implementing the most important aspects of ensuring that urbanization remains the strategic issue, both for local and for national governments. This includes the consolidated vision of urbanization as the key driver and source of development as well as the engine for prosperity and human progress, as reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
