Collaboration between Penang Institute & UN-Habitat

A MoU between Penang Institute and UN-Habitat was recently signed at the 7th Asia-Pacific Urban Forum to jointly promote the 2030 Agenda and the New Urban Agenda in Penang at the local and national levels.

Through the agreement, Penang Institute becomes a reference in measuring and monitoring urban conditions in Penang, using the context of the SDGs, through the implementation of a City Prosperity Index (CPI) developed by UN-Habitat. Furthermore, both parties will be working towards the establishment of a Centre of Excellence on sustainable urban solutions, and develop partnerships with strategic partners willing to be associated with the Centre.
