Safer Cities in the Pacific Conference posterThe National Capital District Commission (NCDC) in PNG and UN Women are jointly organising a conference on 19-20 October 2017 in Port Moresby to discuss projects and initiatives to improve safety in cities around the Pacific.

The conference offers a platform for diverse stakeholders working towards urban safety in the region to exchange success stories and lessons learnt. There will also be working sessions where participants can develop contextually-relevant solutions together. Further to this, the conference aims to serve as a networking space to foster productive partnerships between civil society, government and academia, to work in a coordinated and collaborative manner towards safer cities.

We are pleased to invite representatives from organisations to present at this conference.
