    The Networking Event, entitled “Crises as an opportunity to rethink urban and housing policies” and will be a relevant example on how to the realization of the transformative commitments set out through the New Urban Agenda have been successfully implemented in Spain. The event will show how this implementation requires national, sub-national, and local governments collaboration to ensure an enabling policy framework, integrated by planning and management of urban spatial development, and effective means of implementation at all these levels. The event will present the example and evolution of urban and housing policies in Spain and a reflection on how the lessons learnt can be useful for other countries to be implemented in their own context.
