The Africa Urban Forum is a continental platform that promotes sustainable development in African human settlements. It is a platform through which governments collaborate to enhance African cities, enabling them to fulfil their potential as centres of hope, growth, and prosperity. The African Union Commission and its member states established the Africa Urban Forum in 2022 in response to the growing awareness of the rapid urbanisation in Africa, its opportunities and challenges, and the need for a continental-scale forum to support an inclusive and holistic approach to unlocking the potential of urbanisation on the continent.


The Harmonised Regional Framework for Implementing the New Urban Agenda in Africa, developed by the African Union Commission jointly with UN-Habitat and UNECA, serves as the main guiding framework for the deliberations of the Africa Urban Forum. The framework aligns with the transformative vision of Africa’s Agenda 2063 and serves as a pivot for addressing urban-related issues in Africa.


Ethiopia will host the inaugural Africa Urban Forum, to be convened on 4-6 September 2024 at the Adwa Victory Memorial Museum. The format of the Africa Urban Forum will include roundtables, plenary sessions, panel discussions, dialogues, side events, assemblies, and exhibitions.
