The Urban Economy Forum will host its fourth annual conference, UEF4, an important venue for financial institutions, economic organisations, urban practitioners and stakeholders, city leaders, and academia, to participate in an open dialogue on Sustainable Urban Development with a focus on urban economy. In addition, it will be a venue for brainstorming, networking, and making vital connections that can lead to new initiatives, research and funding.
The title of this year’s Forum is “Sustainable Urban Finance”. The format of the Forum will be hybrid in nature, with in-person and virtual participation. The Forum will have plenary sessions, paper presentations and thematic discussion and facilitate a tour of Regent Park where World Urban Pavilion, a joint initiative of UEF, and UN-Habitat with the support of the Government of Canada and Daniels Corporation is situated.
