“Union for the Mediterranean – Urban Projects Finance Initiative:
Towards a New Urban Agenda for the Mediterranean Region”
Quito, 18 October 2016
on the margin of Habitat III
Dear Sir/Madame,

We have the pleasure to invite you to the Networking Event titled “Union for the Mediterranean – Urban Projects Finance Initiative (UPFI): Towards a New Urban Agenda for the Mediterranean region” that the Union for the Mediterranean Secretariat (UfM), in cooperation with the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) will be co-organising on the margin of the UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III-Quito).

This Networking Event will take place in Quito on 18 October 2016 from 16:30 to 18:30 (room MR12, Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana “Benjamin Carrión”), bringing together key urban development actors in the Mediterranean, the partners involved in UPFI initiative, and potential partners to develop future regional programmes and projects in the region, with a view to addressing the region’s demographic and environmental challenges.

UPFI is an innovative financial initiative funded by the European Commission and co-managed by AFD and EIB, under the auspices of the UfM. It is aimed at identifying and selecting flagship sustainable urban development projects likely to be endorsed (labelled) by the UfM Member States and financed and implemented in the short term.

The UfM-UPFI networking event will raise awareness about the added value of this initiative and its related UfM labelled projects. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the best tools to implement a “New Urban Agenda for the Mediterranean region”, in view of the Second UfM Ministerial Conference on Sustainable Urban Development to be held in Egypt in the spring of 2017, and taking into consideration the regional and international contexts.

The UfM Secretariat looks forward to welcoming you in Quito. Your participation will be of high added value to this event.

We would be grateful if you could kindly confirm your participation at the following email address:

Yours Sincerely,
