Urban Breakfasts are customarily held by the Habitat III Secretariat in collaboration with various esteemed partners every month to reflect on challenges facing sustainable urban development and key priorities to take into account in the New Urban Agenda to be adopted at the Habitat III conference.
As urbanization often follows different paths and trajectories that are dependent on national and regional contexts, the Urban Breakfasts focus on introducing and discussing regional urban perspectives, with the participation of key speakers from national governments, local authorities, academia, civil society, the private sector, and other stakeholders.
In New York, a special series under Urban Breakfasts—Urban Thursday Breakfasts (UTB)—has been organised in collaboration with the Ford Foundation, the first session having been held on December 17, 2015.
In Brussels, Urban Breakfasts are organised every six weeks at the UN House Brussels, the first session having been held on January 14, 2016.
