Addressing Growing Income Inequalities in Cities Through Inclusive Local Financing
Through this Technical Roundtable, the UN Capital Development Fund aims to gather experts, practitioners including city government representatives and development partners to discuss how to address growing inequality in cities and how to make cities of the future more inclusive and responsive to the needs of all citizens including women and youth. The event builds on the newly launched UNCDF initiative ‘IncluCity’ and will highlight key underlying bottlenecks leading to persistent inequalities in cities and show how city governments can respond to those challenges.
The event will particularly focus on the importance of investing in local solutions that address the needs of the most vulnerable populations and increase their access to economic opportunities, better services and infrastructure. It will showcase best practices and lessons on how an enabling policy and institutional environment for an inclusive agenda for cities can be developed and implemented. The event will provide a forum for discussion and contribute to key recommendations and ways forward for alliance building to produce new knowledge and tools such as measurement systems to track progress on local commitments on equality and economic inclusion.
