May 2017: Habitat III and the Sustainable Development Goals
In New York at the National Planning Conference, May 6–9, 2017, there will be two sessions on Habitat III.
One is related to three U.S. cities — Baltimore, New York, and San Jose, California — that are integrating the SDG metrics and indicators into their plans: “Implementing the UN’s Global Agenda for Cities” on Sunday, May 7, 1 p.m.–2:15 p.m. The second is “Implementing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals” on Saturday, May 6, 1 p.m.–2:15 p.m. This will be a broader look at the goals themselves and the metrics recommended to track progress.
