[Conference] Transforming ACP cities, leaving no one behind: engaging in large scale investments in slums

“Transforming ACP cities, leaving no one behind: engaging in large scale investments in slums,” the third African, Caribbean and Pacific group of States (ACP) Secretariat, the European Commission (EC), and UN-Habitat International Tripartite Conference will take place in Brussels November 14th – 16th, 2018.

The conference will assemble Ministers, Mayors, civil society and PSUP community leaders, NGOs, academia, private sector, research institutions, regional development bodies and financing partners as well as other UN and development agencies from all over the world to share experiences, achievements, methodologies and tools for up-scaling slum upgrading and affordable housing.

The conference will aim at (i) creating a platform for a community of practice to learn and exchange knowledge on slum upgrading and prevention practices and successful approaches in different contexts; (ii) building and exploring strengthened partnership opportunities for slum upgrading at scale; (iii) agreeing on a common declaration to support the global policy dialogue, involving outreach and advocacy to push for collective action that creates an enabling environment and commitment to meet the financial requirement for up-scaled citywide participatory slum upgrading and prevention; and (iv) sensitizing the private sector on investment potentials and governance for dedicated and predictable financing.
