About the conference
The conference Reviewing the State of Safety in Cities: Partnerships and Solutions for Localized Implementation has the overall aim of matching knowledge and experience about “what works” with identified needs to foster safe and inclusive cities. The Conference specifically focuses on the state of safety in small and medium-sized cities and has been structured to elaborate a working agenda for inter-sessional processes in preparation of the next biennial conference in June 2019. The agenda focuses specifically on four working themes that are structured around several guiding questions.
UN-Habitat's Safer Cities Programme and Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, in collaboration with members of the Coordination Core Group including the United Nations Office at Geneva; the International Committee of the Red Cross; the United Nations Development Programme; the Graduate Institute's Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding; the Geneva International Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces; and the Small Arms Survey.
Senior expert level of city or national administrations, community organizations, international organizations, academia, think tanks or other specialized entities.
