We are pleased to invite you to this regional conference presenting the qualitative assessment of fulfillment in the last twenty years of urban commitments made by national governments at the UN conference Habitat II (1996), in six Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico.

Renowned local experts have prepared these reports within the context of the "Global Urban Futures" project of the New School University in New York, with the support of the Ford Foundation. These Urban Dialogues are carried out in the context of a cooperation agreement between CAF and the OLA/The New School, and is part of the preparatory meetings for Habitat III to be held in Quito, Ecuador in October 2016.
