World Cities Day 2016 was of great significance to UN-Habitat, having taken place a few days after the Habitat III Conference. It was the first UN-Habitat event organized under the theme, ‘Together beyond Habitat III’, celebrating the adoption of the New Urban Agenda, and setting the pace for global advocacy for the implementation of the Agenda. World Cities Day 2016 was celebrated under the theme – Inclusive Cities, Shared Development.

The main celebration was held in Quito, Ecuador.
