The innovation session on “Leaving No One Behind: Addressing Changing Urban Population Dynamics” will explore sub-national and local level challenges in address changing population dynamics, including by addressing the needs of marginalized groups and those in vulnerable situations and at extreme risk for disasters. The  session will also explore how local governments and municipalities can utilize population data for urban planning, and in monitoring and reporting on the implementation of SDG indicators, including SDG 11. The session will provide foresight for local governments and municipalities, as many national governments in the region will be undertaking 2020 censuses.
