This week, planners, policymakers and urban practitioners from across the world are gathering in Kuala Lumpur for World Urban Forum 9. This story is part of Next City’s coverage of the Forum. For more stories, visit our World Urban Forum 9 page here.

Each day during World Urban Forum 9, Next City is inviting attendees to visit the World Stage for wide-ranging conversations about the principles enshrined in the New Urban Agenda. On Wednesday, Feb. 7, the topics discussed included how conservation can coexist with development in George Town, Malaysia; the importance of making cities accessible to older people and people with disabilities; and a tool to help cities prevent “resilience” from being just a buzzword.
