This session will seek to develop the conceptual, analytical and institutional frameworks for monitoring the New Urban Agenda by engaging in a discussion about the data requirements for a New Urban Agenda.
This session is centred on the notion that access to data and evidence-based information and knowledge on urban development is the foundation which city authorities, citizens and various stakeholders need for smart decisions; with such, citizens can develop relevant, insightful and effective strategies, policies and and legislation, which in turn can feed into a New Urban Agenda.
The session will also discuss the roles of global, national and local observatories in the collection and monitoring of data or the New Urban Agenda and the forms this information needs to be disseminated.
