The World Urban Forum (WUF) is the premier global conference on sustainable urbanisation. The World Urban Forum (WUF) was established by the United Nations in 2001 to examine one of the most pressing issues facing the world: rapid urbanisation and its impact on communities, cities, economies, and climate change.
Over the past two decades, WUF has evolved into the premier global conference on sustainable urbanisation. Convened by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the forum is a unique non-legislative platform and one of the most inclusive international gatherings on urban issues. The first WUF was held in Nairobi, Kenya in 2002 and has been held around the world ever since. The WUF12 will be held from 4–8 November 2024 in Cairo, Egypt, and is co-organised by UN-Habitat and the Government of Egypt.
