The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda is centralizing the links between urban development, climate change and gender inequality. In partnership with the The United Nations Habitat III and a UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, the organization United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) are pushing for a New Urban Agenda that simultaneously transforms cities into ecologically functioning habitats while putting the inseparable issue of women’s empowerment and rights at the center of this ecological urban vision.
