The Side Event, “Cities in Crisis/Crisis in Cities” will feature a panel discussion on how the implementation of the New Urban Agenda can advance the work of the Global Alliance for Urban Crises, with a focus on the humanitarian-development and recovery nexus, in an effort to adapt humanitarian action to an urban world and leave no city behind.
