The Urban Edition of the Youth Science-Policy Interface Publication captures and promotes the role of young people in sharing knowledge of evidence-based best practices, science and technology, emerging trends, challenges, and solutions in the implementation, monitoring, follow-up, and review of inter-governmentally agreed and allied frameworks on sustainable development – specifically in urban settings.
Launched in October 2016 as part of the Children & Youth Assembly at Habitat III, it showcases the contributions of young scientists, engineers, practitioners, and innovators in strengthening the science-policy interface. It further seeks to build coherence between the New Urban Agenda and the urban dimensions of other intergovernmental agreed sustainable development agendas (e.g. 2030 Agenda, Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, etc.).
