The 2nd international Implementing the New Urban Agenda and SDGs Conference will be held in partnership with the 26th EAROPH World Congress, in Newcastle, NSW on the 1st and 2nd November, 2018.

The congress follows the successful inaugural conference in Melbourne in May 2017 where 240 delegates from 11 countries met for the first time following the signing of The New Urban Agenda in Quito in 2016.

This 2018 congress will be focused on the theme Affordable Living in Sustainable Cities:  Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.
We aim to make the congress a showcase for existing and planned actions that support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.  A key objective is to develop synergy and integration between these two critically important frameworks.
