This site provides information on the joint work of the EU, FAO, OECD, UN-Habitat and World Bank to develop a global city and settlement definition. This voluntary commitment was launched at the UN-Habitat III conference in Quito. This will help the implementation of the new global urban agenda. The goal is to test two existing defintions globally: The degree of urbanisation and the EU-OECD functional urban area definition.
