Shifting to Planned Urbanization: The Role of Development and South South Cooperation in Implementing the New Urban Agenda
Organized jointly by the Korea Development Institute (KDI) and The Asia Foundation (TAF), the “Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation” (AADC) dialogue series brings together development experts and government officials from the Asia region and beyond. In 2017, the AADC dialogues focus on how Asian countries are tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through their cooperation programs. The first conference in Manila (May) explored planned urbanization and the New Urban Agenda while the second meeting in Ulaanbaatar (September) will discuss women and girls’ empowerment. This report intends to cover the proceedings and outcomes of the Manila meeting, featuring presentations and discussions by regional government officials, policy specialists and development experts.
