NEW YORK, NEW YORK!
This week, 1st July, the authors of the new World Cities Report (WCR) met in New York at the United Nations building to discuss the drafts of chapters of the report. The WCR is being prepared in advance of the Habitat III conference on cities to be held in Bogotá, Ecuador, in October 2016. The WCR will be released later this year. The report tracks the progress on the development of cities over the past two decades since the Habitat II conference in Istanbul in 1996. Urban Frontiers is responsible for writing the chapter on the Urban Economy.
