Global Parliamentarians on Habitat Roundtable

Urban Equity in Development - Cities for Life: Role of Parliamentarians

The main objectives of the Global Parliamentarians on Habitat Roundtable are:

  • To develop a common understanding of urban equity and equality issues amongst the Parliamentarians.  
  • To encourage the Parliamentarians to explore better urban laws, legislations, debates, and consensus and to advocate for sustainable urbanization and equal outcomes for all.
  • To discuss developing a New Urban Development Agenda incorporating equity issues for addressing the Post-2015 goals through policies and resource commitment. To promote equity and decentralization of power for local-level decision making and better urban governance law, legislations and policies. To identify means of promoting co-operation and knowledge sharing amongst various platforms of Parliamentarians and Policy Makers to address inequalities in cities.
