World City Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2013 with the aim of improving the lives of urban dwellers and finding ways to improve cities. Cambodia has committed to the 17 sustainable development goals, with a particular focus on sustainable cities and communities. In line with Cambodia’s commitment, the objectives of City Day 2023 are as follows:
– Encouraging public participation, especially in marginalized communities affected by development projects, in the urban development process.
– Ensuring that urban policymakers, planners, and other stakeholders systematically and strategically involve the public, community, civil society, and others in creating a sustainable and environmentally friendly city, with mechanisms for implementation and monitoring.
