Intermediary cities hold unique opportunities and solutions to address global challenges and are fundamental for accelerating efforts around international agreements, especially the localization of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is in this framework that the work of the Forum is very much at the heart of the policies promoted by the World Organization. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the urgency to pursue the ecological transformation of intermediary cities, in line with the trends identified during the 1st World Forum and laid out in the Chefchaouen Declaration. As catalysts of territorial development, it is fundamental to address the increasing pressure over intermediary cities and ensure we stand prepared to lead the way to an inclusive and resilient recovery.
