The UNECE Committee on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management is organizing annually the Roundtable “In Focus: SDG 11”. This roundtable discussion provides a platform for dialogue on the successes and challenges in the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and other urban-related SDGs. It focuses on strengthening cooperation with cities and city networks and is organized jointly with the Geneva Cities Hub.

The theme of the event is Affordable housing & sustainable urban development in a world marked by Covid-19 and climate change. The theme corresponds to the theme of the 2021 UNECE Ministerial Meeting on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management “Affordable, adequate, and resilient housing in liveable cities, including cities which face extreme weather conditions”. Outcomes of the event will inform discussions during the UNECE Ministerial Meeting on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management and the 82nd session of the Committee on Housing, Urban Development and Land Management (06 - 08 October 2021).
