With the expectation that the world urban population will nearly double by 2050, evidence-based research is critical for the development of policies and practice that reflect the new global urban reality, leading to world leaders adopting the "New Urban Agenda".

The Wilson Center is hosting discussion about the latest research from the field on innovative urban approaches to climate change, accommodating refugees in urban areas, and inclusive city planning. Winning authors of the 2016 Graduate Student Reducing Urban Poverty Paper Competition will present their solutions-oriented research, with commentary offered by experienced professionals working in the urban sector.
