New Delhi, June 26, 2023 — Ahmedabad will host the Urban20 (U20) Mayoral Summit on July 7-8, 2023. The summit will bring together mayors, city leaders from G20 nations, and delegates representing various organizations and dignitaries from the Indian and State Governments.

U20 is an Engagement Group under India’s G20 presidency, emphasizing the role of cities in achieving sustainable development through collaboration.

Ahmedabad is the U20 Chair for the current cycle, with the National Institute of Urban Affairs and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs supporting.

At the U20 City Sherpa meeting in February 2023, six priority areas were deliberated and finalized for inclusion in the U20 Communiqué. These priorities include environmentally responsible behaviors, climate finance, water security, digital urban futures, urban governance, planning frameworks, and local culture and economy. The upcoming Mayoral Summit will feature four thematic sessions focusing on these priorities, with over 20 mayors from around the world and 25 from Indian cities sharing their experiences and releasing six white papers.

Other events at the summit include spotlight sessions on urban resilience, city readiness for investments, inclusion, circular economy, and data-driven governance, an exhibition showcasing India’s urban successes, and a screening of select films on climate change.

Participating Mayors and delegates will also go on city excursions, visit historical monuments and the Sabarmati Ashram, and experience Gujarat and India’s cultural heritage. The U20 Communiqué, an action-oriented document prepared collaboratively by attending Mayors, will be handed over to G20 leaders.
