Habitat III Conference in Quito (Ecuador): Adoption of the New Urban Agenda

Author(s) : CIPC


From October 17 to 20 was held the third UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, Habitat III, in Quito, Ecuador. This Conference aims to promote global debate on cities and urban challenges at the international level. Over 30,000 people attended the Conference where a “New Urban Agenda” was adopted in order to make cities more inclusive, resilient, sustainable and safer.


As part of the Summit and during an Urban Library event, ICPC marked the official launch of its “5th International Report on Crime Prevention and Community Safety: Cities and the New Urban Agenda”.


With this new edition of the Report, ICPC wanted to return to a theme that has been the central topic of its mandate since the beginning, crime prevention in the urban context, and hopes it will contribute to the reflection and definition of key policies in relation to the New Urban Agenda and crime prevention within cities.


The event was attended by representatives from the government of Canada, UN-Habitat and Women in Cities International. Around fifty people were present for the launching.


This Conference has also been an opportunity for ICPC to re-engage with our members and partners as well as further expand our network.
