ONE UN - World Urban Forum 11th Session (WUF11, 26–30 June 2022, Katowice, Poland)

United Nations funds, programmes, and specialised agencies comprise a distinctly important constituency for the World Urban Forum (WUF) as they represent critical links to global agendas and commitments at the policy level to leave no one behind in the pursuit of sustainable development. Sustainable urbanization approaches driven by UN-Habitat place the world's cities and urban human settlements at the heart of that development.

WUF11's theme of Transforming Our Cities for a Better Urban Future presents a city-oriented, urban-grounded opportunity to deliver on commitments to accelerate progress toward the Global Goals, and a vibrant knowledge marketplace to explore the best ways to do it.
