The Seventh Asia-Pacific Urban Forum (APUF-7) will be held from 15-17 October 2019 in Penang, Malaysia, to mobilise partners from across the region to focus on accelerating implementation of the New Urban Agenda, Paris Agreement, Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and 2030 Agenda to achieve a sustainable future for cities throughout Asia and the Pacific. APUF-7 will bring a diverse array of cities, expert speakers and thought leaders who are shaping the region’s urban future.

UCLG ASPAC is an active member of the APUF Steering Committee. In partnership with cities, local governments, and partner organisations, UCLG ASPAC will co-organise a series of events to present local voice and provide substantive inputs to the discussions. The aim is to ensure that the work that UCLG ASPAC has been doing on the ground with partners across Asia and the Pacific region, along with insights and lessons gained, will be well reflected in the dialogues that will shape the way forward for sustainable urban development. Below is a list of the activities that UCLG ASPAC will be co-organising with partners during the APUF-7. Please click on each event for more detailed information.
