The Quito Implementation Plan refers to specific commitments by various partners intended to contribute to and reinforce the implementation of the outcomes of Habitat III Conference and the New Urban Agenda. These voluntary commitments seek to be concrete actions, measurable and achievable, focused on implementation, and with great depth of information for future accountability and transparency. The term ‘commitment’ implies emphasis to the implementation and outcomes of one or multi-stakeholders initiatives to promote sustainable urban development rather than the common activity of the partners.
The initiatives under the Quito Implementation Plan
- should be specific, replicable, action-oriented, funded and innovative;
- must be monitored and subject to reporting on a regular basis;
- should demonstrate the capacity to deliver;
- should be led by partners able to showcase implementation of existing commitments (sufficient level of maturity).
- For cooperative international initiatives, they must observe inclusiveness (e.g. balance regional representation).
