Your role

One of the key objectives of the conference is to produce a ‘roadmap’ to the implementation of the New Urban Agenda.  A rapporteur will be present in all workshop sessions to record the key issues identified and to report back to the overall conference rapporteur who in turn will be responsible for reporting to conference (final plenary) and for producing a conference report.

Each workshop will be asked to:

  • identify key barriers to implementation of the NUA in relation to the subject material of the workshop.
  • identify up to three early implementation strategies, approaches or problem solutions.


In general, each workshop has two or three presentations and the workshop duration is one and a half hours.  We would suggest that each presentation takes a maximum of 20 minutes to allow for 30 minutes of collective discussion.

Alternatively, if presenters in any session wish to coordinate a different structure, please feel free to do so. However, please consider the desired workshop outputs below to maintain the objective of each workshop contributing to a conference report.

If you have a presentation that you would like to be made available to the public post-event,  please ensure that it is in PowerPoint or pdf format and that it has a maximum file size of 10mb. 

PowerPoint presentations will need to be submitted by Monday 17th April. CLICK HERE to upload the file to Dropbox. If you have any difficulty accessing the folder please email
