Policy Lab: The European and Global Urban Agendas and their Relevance for Cyprus

The EUKN organised a Policy Lab for its member Cyprus. On 30 January 2017, representatives from Cypriot governmental bodies, from UN Habitat, and from the EUKN Secretariat met in Nicosia to discuss the relevance of the two urban agendas for Cyprus.

After an introduction by the EUKN EGTC Director Mr Mart Grisel (photo), Mr Phaedon Enotiades from the Department of Town Planning and Housing elaborated on Cyprus' role in both agendas. Mr Tobias Kettner from the UN Habitat Office in Brussels presented the New Urban Agenda.

In two interactive sessions, participants discussed opportunities for further engagement in the implementation of the Urban Agenda for the EU and in the New Urban Agenda for Cyprus. 

The presentations will be made available here soon.
