Local drummers entertained delegates at lunchtime

On Friday morning, the 2016 World Summit began its third vibrant day of forums, meetings, policy dialogues, and workshops, focusing on: the spirit of solidarity; the right to the city at the heart of the New Urban Agenda; local finance, participation and inclusive governance; city-to-city and South-South and triangular cooperation for decent work; how local climate action will deliver on the Paris Agreement; and local resources and public investments. The permanent working platform dedicated to co-creating the city examined the right to the diverse city, experimental cities and the right to the fair city.

In the afternoon, the second session of the Second World Assembly of Local and Regional Governments adopted a joint statement on the New Urban Agenda to deliver to Habitat III.

Following the Assembly, participants joined evening sessions on financing the new agenda, cities in crisis, public spaces, urban innovation and governing with the citizen. The day was also filled with opportunities for networking and connecting, including a social event in the evening.
