The World Urban Forum (WUF) is an event organized every two years by the UN-Habitat since 2002; this year’s edition was held in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) from 7 to 13 February 2018. The main focus of the WUF9 has been the implementation of the New Urban Agenda (NUA), which was adopted in 2016 in Quito (Ecuador), and the planning of sustainable cities in close connection with the objectives set by Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. ECF and WCA were present at the forum.
Key Deliverables / Outcomes
The WCA aims to provide a strong, unified, global non-government voice for bicycling transportation and recreation. The WCA will advocate for bicycling with the United Nations, Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, International Transport Forum, World Bank and other leading international groups. Our presence at the World Urban forum was an ongoing part of our commitment to be present at such world events.
