World Urban Forum 9, Day Three: Architects, Advocates and Mayors from across the Globe

Members of the Consortium for Sustainable Urbanization discuss gateway portals to New York City.

This week, planners, policymakers and urban practitioners from across the world are gathering in Kuala Lumpur for World Urban Forum 9. This story is part of Next City’s coverage of the Forum. For more stories, visit our World Urban Forum 9 page here.

Each day during World Urban Forum 9, Next City is inviting attendees to visit the World Stage for conversations about the principles enshrined in the New Urban Agenda. On Friday, Feb. 9, our speakers talked about cities’ role in dismantling inequality, new ideas in flood adaptation, and how a city in Albania—“until recently, the North Korea of Europe”—is reinventing itself after the fall of communism.
