This workshop is organized to convene members of the Coalition of Arab Cities against Racism, Discrimination, Xenophobia and Intolerance, analyze the challenges it faces and the lessons learned since its inception in 2008, within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in the wake of the adoption of the New Urban Agenda. The meeting also seeks to find ways to revitalize the Coalition by developing a roadmap for collaboration among its members and various stakeholders.
