The Pacific Urban Forum (PUF) is an inclusive multi-stakeholder platform for policy dialogue towards a sustainable urban future for the Pacific region.

Following the adoption of the New Urban Agenda and a renewed recognition of the many opportunities and challenges for the Pacific, the PUF aims to develop action plans, provide recommendations for urbanization strategies and elicit voluntary commitments from different stakeholders in order to successfully anchor the Pacific New Urban Agenda.

Moreover, the forum strengthens the exchange and dialogue within the Pacific among various urban stakeholders such as policy makers from national and local governments, non-governmental and community-based organizations, relevant development partners, academia, private sector, professionals and individuals.

An exhibition area will be available for poster exhibition, display of material and presentations. Posters will be displayed for the duration of the Pacific Urban Forum (1-3 July, 2019).

Country delegations are invited to participate in the exhibition. Other participants from inter-governmental organizations, Civil Society, Private Sector and other stakeholder groups are also invited to present relevant material in the poster exhibition area.

Further suggestions

It makes it easy if each poster has a clear message and a logical layout in order to comprehend it in a couple of minutes

Posters ideally have specific sections (such as the background, methods, results and conclusions) which are easy to locate 

Please try to avoid large blocks of text and long sentences sections so that the content can be quickly and easily read

Keep in mind that the type/font size is large enough that it can easily be read and try to avoid adding too much text to your poster

Supporting images (e.g. graphs, tables, illustrations, photographs...) can be very helpful and are often necessary to display results.

Adequate contrast between the font color and the poster's background will increase reading visibility

We encourage the use of ecofriendly poster materials and the avoidance of laminating for the good of the environment
