Penang Platform for Sustainable Urbanization

In October 2019, multi-stakeholders and urban practitioners gathered in Penang, Malaysia at the 7th Asia-Pacific Urban Forum (APUF-7) to focus on accelerating implementation to achieve a sustainable future for cities throughout Asia and the Pacific. They built consensus around thematic priorities to achieve sustainable urbanization and launched the Penang Platform for Sustainable Urbanization (PPSU) – a dynamic new partnership to leverage the strengths of cities and leading urban development organizations to support local, provincial and national governments in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the New Urban Agenda in Asia and the Pacific, and contribute to the Paris Climate Agreement and Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
