habitat-iiiThe United States will participate in the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) in Quito, Ecuador, October 17-20, 2016. As a UN conference which only takes place once every 20 years, we expect Habitat III to reinvigorate the global commitment to sustainable urbanization, and to focus on the adoption and implementation of a New Urban Agenda. The United States is committed to working with all stakeholders, including other Member States, multilateral organizations, local governments, private sector and civil society, on the enormous challenges and opportunities in achieving sustainable urban development.
