ABOUT THE EVENT 
Japan and India share a “Special Strategic and Global Partnership”. The relations between the two countries are of immense importance to each other and the world. A resurgent Japan and a transforming India could potentially reshape the Asian Strategic landscape. Japan is a partner to India whether it is building industrial corridors in India or becoming the formal partner of the Malabar Exercise. Both the countries have witnessed significant deepening of bilateral relations in the past three years and a growing convergence in the political, economic and strategic interests. At one level, this is based on the firm foundation of common values and traditions and on an emerging consensus on contemporary issues of peace, security and development.
This session will focus on the potential of India and Japan for working together to elevate their partnership to a higher stage and advance common strategic objectives at a time when the global community is faced with new challenges.

United Nations begins the Urban Journalism Academy on World Urban Forum 9
Academy facilitates understanding of cities as centres of sustainability and inclusiveness

18 January 2018, New Delhi:United Nations commenced the first Urban Journalism Academy in New Delhi today with broad participation from more than 40 media professionals from across India. The academy shines a light on issues that are key to urban spaces today in light of rapid urbanization and ever limited resources.

The academy is a two-day precursor to the World Urban Forum 9 (WUF 9) to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 7-13 February 2018 and focuses on “Cities 2030, Cities for All: Implementing the New Urban Agenda”.

In the spotlight is the New Urban Agenda (NUA), adopted at the Habitat III in Ecuador in 2016. It provides the critical course to the holistic cities of the future that are inclusive and sustainable and assimilate the Sustainable Development Goals.

The first day of the academy saw introductions to the WUF 9 and the New Urban Agenda. Mr. Rajiv Ranjan Mishra, additional secretary, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs underlined the initiatives taken by the government towards achieving SDGs and alignment to the NUA.

Keeping with the theme of the WUF 9, some of the issues deliberated on were housing as the most critical element in cities that can be the stimulus for economic development and poverty eradication.

With rapid urbanization, the massive anthropogenic pressures on the climate are evident. Hence the afternoon session saw climate action, environmental sustainability and resilience as a key session. The concluding session on day one focused on urban development, management and policy and the key enablers of urban prosperity.

The second and concluding day of the academy will see sessions on innovative governance, urban economy and municipal finance. The valedictory session will sum up the academy with the Minister (Independent Charge), Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Hardeep Singh Puri providing the Indian government perspective on its urban agenda and its commitment to SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement.
