The Incheon International Mayors Forum
Location: Incheon, Republic of Korea
Date: 16-19 June 2020
(Dates may be changed subject to the evolution of the COVID-19 situation)
Objective: The main objective of the Incheon International Mayors Forum is to provide a platform for policy dialogue and knowledge sharing through presentations and discussions on key aspects related to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 11, at local level as a means to achieve a better understanding of successes, lessons and specific mechanisms and accelerate the in-depth transformation needed to make our societies inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. During recent surveys conducted by UNOSD to evaluate past fora, local representatives noted that policies and plans exist for sustainable development but lack financing locally to implement these. Another challenge cited was data to monitor progress on the Goals locally. Based on these findings, the Mayors Forum also aims to build the knowledge and skills of local leaders for financing and monitoring SDG implementation locally.
