On 20th November 2017, the European Commission presented to the Council its first report on the Implementation of the Urban Agenda for the EU.
The purpose of the report is to describe the initial stage of implementation and the preliminary results of the Urban Agenda for the EU until October 2017.
The report underlines the key features of the working method and at the same time, it presents the results and the impacts that the Urban Agenda for the EU had on policy making. Furthermore, the report presents some preliminary proposals in terms of better regulation, better funding and better knowledge based on the Action Plans of the first four partnerships.
The Urban Agenda for the EU was established by the Pact of Amsterdam, in May 2016. It is anew working method built on a partnership-based, voluntary cooperation between  Member States, Cities, the European Commission and other stakeholders to improve the coordination of EU policies affecting cities in order to stimulate growth, liveability and innovation in European cities.
The Council of the European Union has recognised that the Urban Agenda for the EU is a key delivery mechanism for the New Urban Agenda within the European Union.
8 of the 12 partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU will host stakeholder workshops during the Cities forum event in Rotterdam, the 27-28 November.
