The In Focus: SDG 11 event is a platform for a refreshing dialogue on how cities and their networks as well as relevant organizations and stakeholders address global challenges that are traditionally discussed by States in multilateral fora. The In Focus: SDG 11 aims at better linking intergovernmental debates on issues related to SDG11 with what cities and their networks, and other stakeholders are doing on the ground. The event has been organized each year by UNECE since 2018 and the Geneva Cities Hub has partnered with UNECE on this event since 2019.
