The German Habitat Forum took place in Berlin on 1-2 June 2016 and brought together about 1000 attendees from 74 countries. The results of the deliberations by this wide range of stakeholders are the “Berlin Recommendations for the Cities of Tomorrow” which you can find by clicking on the link below. These recommendations are suggested as inputs for the ongoing negotiations on the New Urban Agenda, to be adopted at the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) in Quito, Ecuador in October 2016.
