World Urban Forum 5:The Right to the City-Bridging the Urban Divide.

UN-HABITAT and the Government of Brazil welcome you to the Fifth Session of the World Urban Forum in Rio de Janeiro which will be held from 22 to 26 March 2010. The theme of the Forum in 2010 is ''The Right to the City: Bridging the Urban Divide.''    In the space of a few short years, the World Urban Forum has turned into the world’s premier conference on cities. The Forum was established by the United Nations to examine one of the most pressing problems facing the world today: rapid urbanization and its impact on communities, cities, economies, climate change and policies.
