Each day during World Urban Forum 9, Next City is inviting attendees to visit the World Stage for conversations about the principles enshrined in the New Urban Agenda. On Monday, Feb. 12, our speakers talked about how slum-dwellers maintain their informal settlements in the absence of government assistance and the importance of building age-friendly cities.
