Harmonious Urbanization:The Challenge of Balanced Territorial Development
UN-HABITAT and the Government of China welcome you to the Fourth session of the World Urban Forum at the Nanjing Convention and Exhibition Centre, 13–17 October, 2008. Held every two years, the Forum is the world’s premier conference on cities and the problems they face in a world where half of humanity is urbanized – in the new era of homo urbanus.
Situated in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, the ancient Chinese city of Nanjing dates back more than 2000 years and is known as the ancient capital of the Six Dynasties of China. It is home to almost 4 million people, a population which is rapidly expanding, propelled by a dynamic local economy. Nanjing and UN-HABITAT welcome you to the Fourth session of the World Urban Forum, October 13–17, 2008 at The Nanjing Convention and Exhibition Center.
