The New Urban Agenda is the outcome document agreed upon at the Habitat III cities conference in Quito, Ecuador, in October 2016. It will guide the efforts around urbanization of a wide range of actors — nation states, city and regional leaders, international development funders, United Nations programmes and civil society — for the next 20 years. Inevitably, this agenda will also lay the groundwork for policies and approaches that will extend, and impact, far into the future. See the final version of the New Urban Agenda here .

The preparatory process along the road to Quito influenced the formulation of the New Urban Agenda, which was unveiled as a “ zero draft ” in May 2016 and kicked off what ended up being four months’ worth of political negotiations on the new strategy. Those negotiations resulted in a series of additional drafts, available here .

That preparatory process also included an extensive series of official and semi-official events , including regional meetings, thematic meetings and “Urban Thinkers Campuses” for stakeholder input. In addition, from August 2015 to February 2016 a group of 200 experts, known as “policy units”, came up with important recommendations for the drafting and implementing of the New Urban Agenda. Those recommendations, too, were open to broad public comment.

“This edition of Agenda for a New Economy brings together previously fragmented ideas about how to move  forward into a compelling, cohesive framework for personal, community and government action. This book  will get you from ‘yes, but how?’ to ‘yes, and here’s how’.”

“In this new edition of his groundbreaking book, David Korten steps up with a new, practical and energizing guide we all can use to transform today’s economic disaster into a Living Democracy.”
—Frances Moore Lappé, author of Getting a Grip 2 and Diet for a Small Planet “

The 1st edition of Agenda for a New Economy launched on January 23, 2009, just after the Obama inauguration, at a national theological conference sponsored by the historic Trinity Church, located at the head of Wall Street. This edition of Agenda made a compelling case that Wall Street cannot be fixed and must be replaced. See  my report   and related interviews on  PBS NOW with David Broncaccio   and  Democracy Now with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales . See also the presentation at Elliot Bay Books discussing the background and message of Agenda featured on  C-Span 2 Book TV  “Top Nonfiction Authors and Books.”
