This event will begin by presenting a global perspective on National Urban Policies and the role of National Urban Policies as a tool for the implementation of the New Urban Agenda, from the perspective of countries which have begun the National Urban Policies process. The event then focuses on the Arab States region and presents and discusses the regional programme on National Urban Policies in this area. In addition, the event provides other countries in the region with the opportunity to exchange experiences and lessons learnt from their ongoing processes and with those outside the region.
