The Seventh World Urban Forum (WUF7) is rapidly approaching this year from April 5-11th, hosted by the City of Medellin, Colombia, with the theme “Urban Equality in Development – Cities for Life.” As a non-legislative technical forum convened by UN-Habitat, the World Urbam Forum examines the most pressing issues facing the world today in the area of human settlements, including rapid urbanization and its impact on cities, communities, economies, climate change and policies.

As a lead partner of UN-Habitat, Huairou Commission will play its historic role of ensuring women are at the forefront of the debates around urbanization and human settlements. We hope you will join us as we host the Grassroots Academy, convene the Daily Women's Caucus, and participate in the Gender Equality Action Assembly and Gender and Women's Roundtable.
